That's a special list right there. Some of those guys did literally nothing significant and received votes.

Teams that miss out on the playoffs aren't going to usually garner much attention for team building and coaching. Jim Nill made some well received moves in the offseason and Lindy Ruff is widely respected across the league. However, resutls are what count. The Stars didn't get those results this year. If they rebound next year they will almost certainly pick up some votes in Las Vegas in 2016.

Congrats to Steve Yzerman and Bob Hartley for their wins.
