If mid-season awards were handed out, MacLean would be a shoo-in for Coach of the Half Year.
The Senators started 2011-12 as an inexperienced team full of holes and question marks. They were the favourite of many to win the Nail Yakupov Sweepstakes for the first pick overall in June’s draft.
But under MacLean’s guidance, they find themselves in the thick of a playoff race. Surprise, surprise.

MacLean doesn’t just deserve some of the credit, he warrants most of it.
