Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Jeff Simmons of Sportsnet,
While the NHL will hand out its share of awards at the end of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Sportsnet’s NHL web team decided to hand out some awards of our own.
Winner: Patrick Roy, Colorado Avalanche
A year after winning the Jack Adams Award, Patrick Roy and the Colorado Avalanche have taken several steps back this season.
Even with a deep core of young talent (Nathan MacKinnon, Matt Duchene, Gabriel Landeskog, Ryan O’Reilly, etc), the Avalanche have fallen back to earth after a breakout season in which they won the Central Division with 112 points and pushed the Minnesota Wild to seven games in the opening round of the playoffs.
Despite that, Roy’s team was a wildly popular regression candidate heading into 2014-15.
