Bruce Boudreau finally found success again with the Ducks this season. He was able lead them to a Pacific Division title and the second overall spot in the Western Conference. The drastic turnaround comes after a forgettable thirteenth place finish one year ago.

Joel Quenneville was the brains behind a record breaking 24-game points steak that will forever go down in NHL history as one of the most impressive runs of all time. The Blackhawks compiled the most points in the NHL and won the Presidents Trophy.

Paul MacLean unbelievably led the Senators through an injury riddled regular season and into the playoffs. Ottawa looked to be all but left for dead in a loaded Northeast Division. They played much of the season without Craig Anderson, Erik Karlsson, Jason Spezza, and Milan Michalek. Even with such integral pieces missing, the Sens still managed to clinch a postseason birth.
