Stevens deserves coaching honor

I think it is a great tribute to John Stevens to be named coach of the year by such a prestigious magazine.

Turning a last place team into a conference final team in just one season is a remarkable achievement, especially in today’s NHL. He deserves every bit of this award.

Congratulations, coach Stevens, kudos to you and your entire coaching staff and good luck next year. And thank you to THN for recognizing such a brilliant individual.
