NHL Top Head Coach Award: Is This Prop Betting Offer Free Money?

Paul MacLean is top chalk to win the Jack Adams Trophy

Injuries have always had a huge impact on professional sports. When a sport has shortened season, like the National Hockey League did this year, the bumos and brusies are always magnified. Ottawa entered the 48 game lockout shortened NHL season without a lot of expectations – other than the fact that they wouldn’t be very competitive. Once the season began, injuries came in waves as star after star dropped in the Canadian Capital. Somehow, Senators coach Paul MacLean managed to push the Senators into the playoffs. Chicago coach Joel Quenneville (+350) along with Bruce Boudreau (+500) from the Anaheim Ducks, did a nice job with their respective clubs, but they didn’t face the injury adversity that Maclean had to deal with in Ottawa.

 NHL 2013 shorthanded underdog run to the playoffs makes MacLean a lock

Check out the list of All-Star caliber players that missed significant time for Ottawa this season. Goaltender Graig Anderson (18 games), defenseman Erik Karlsson (31 games) along with forwards Jason Spezza (43 games) and Milan Michalek (15 games) all missed time for the Senators. Posted as +2000 preseason pups to win the 2013 Stanley Cup, the peaky Sens were not even expected to make it to the 2013 NHL playoff party. While they won’t win the Cup, they did finish sixth in the Eastern Conference and we’ll load up on The Walrus to win the Jack Adams Trophy as Coach of the Year Award with the -250 ML at the Bovada online sportsbook!
