New York Islanders GM Garth Snow has established depth on forward and defence while finding his man in goal in Jaroslav Halak. The result has been the Islanders sitting among the powers of the East through half of a season.

Snow received one first place vote and two second place votes.

David Poille added James Neal, made a key change behind the bench for the Nashville Predators and has watched what could be his greatest move in his history – Filip Forsberg – have a breakout season.

The Predators are one of the best teams in the NHL right now thanks to the work that Poille has done.

The Predators GM received two first place votes and one third place vote to be a co-winner with Snow.

Best of the Rest: Jim Rutherford – Pittsburgh (1 first place vote) and Jim Benning – Vancouver (1 first place vote)

Next: Jack Adams Award
