The NHL’s 31 GMs and a panel of League executives, print and broadcast media voted on the award following the conclusion of the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. We’ll find out the winner during the 2018 NHL Awards on June 20 in Las Vegas.

The Case for Kevin Cheveldayoff: A few key signings and one big move at the NHL trade deadline has helped Cheveldayoff’s Jets reach the Western Conference Final for the first time in franchise history. Adding Dmitry Kulikov was a bonus for the blue line in the regular season, but strengthening the core by handing extensions to Connor Hellebuyck, Nikolaj Ehlers, Bryan Little, Ben Chiarot, Brandon Tanev and Andrew Copp aided in this deep playoff run. Boosting their Stanley Cup hopes was the Feb. 26 trade that brought Paul Stastny to Winnipeg for prospect Erik Foley and two conditional draft picks. Since coming over, Stastny has 10 goals and 28 points in 33 regular season and playoff games.

Nashville remains favorite for 2019 NFL Draft site

  Nashville remains favorite for 2019 NFL Draft site A report earlier this month pegged Nashville as the top contender to be named the host city for the 2019 NFL Draft and it doesn’t look like any other bidder has done something to swing things their way. The choice will be revealed at the league meetings taking place in Atlanta this week and Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Nashville remains the favorite to get the event.

2018 Draft 2018 Draft. Free AgencyFree Agency. Bob Murray of the Anaheim Ducks, Glen Sather of the New York Rangers and Steve Yzerman of the Tampa Bay Lightning are the three finalists for the 2014-15 NHL General Manager of the Year Award, the National Hockey League announced today.

General Manager of the Year winner: Tampa Bay Lightning's Steve Yzerman . The franchise hit record marks for wins (50) and points (108) in the regular season. First-place votes: 3. Rest of top 10: 4. Bryan Murray (32, 5), 5. Garth Snow (28, 3), 6. David Poile (24, 2), 7. Kevin Cheveldayoff (19, 2), 8

The Case for George McPhee: Using the NHL’s expansion draft rules to his advantage, McPhee made shrewd deals to add draft picks and impact players while creating the franchise’s first-ever roster. Success came right off the bat and the Golden Knights ended the 2017-18 season by becoming the first modern-era expansion team from the four major North American professional sports league to win its division. By advancing to the Western Conference Final, Vegas became the third team in NHL history to win multiple playoff rounds in their first season.

The Case for Steve Yzerman: The Lightning set franchise records for wins (54) and points (113) during a season that saw them claim a third division title. Yzerman strengthed his roster by adding veterans Dan Girardi and Chris Kunitz over the summer, as well as re-signing forward Yanni Gourde, who finished fourth on the team in scoring with 25 goals and 64 points. Also getting extensions were key cogs Ondrej Palat and Tyler Johnson, who were both on the team in 2015 and 2016, when Tampa last went deep in the playoffs. Like Cheveldayoff, Yzerman was active at the trade deadline and added Ryan McDonagh and J.T. Miller from the New York Rangers to add depth to his forward group and defense corps.

From GM George McPhee, with love: Golden Knights want to thank you for our unparalleled success

  From GM George McPhee, with love: Golden Knights want to thank you for our unparalleled success GM George McPhee has built the best expansion team in pro sports history. He has a few thank-you notes to send out.The man has built the best expansion team in professional sports history. The Golden Knights are two wins short of qualifying for the Stanley Cup Final heading into Friday’s Game 4 at T-Mobile Arena (8 p.m, ET, NBC Sports Network). They lead the Winnipeg Jets 2-1 in their Western Conference final series.

According to Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff , St. Louis GM Doug It was four years ago that McDonagh pushed the Rangers into the Stanley Cup final against the Chicago Blackhawks. Now we’ll see if the moves from Yzerman or Cheveldayoff , or someone else at the deadline, will be enough.

It is year three in Winnipeg for Cheveldayoff and the Jets, and it makes absolutely no sense to invest a sizable amount Steve Yzerman was an amazing player, but thus far he has been a terrible general manager . It was a puzzling answer, but one we should expect from a GM like George McPhee .
