First off, the Carolina Hurricanes coaching is tremendous.Rod Brind’amour and company have did wonders last season. With the recent addition of Jason Muzzatti as the goaltending coach, the high standards set last season look to be continually upheld. Rod should definitely be in contention for coach of the year this year.
And judging by the talent in front of him, he could very well win it. He was snubbed out of the award last year after all. His team also thinks very highly of him which goes a very long way in helping them better themselves on the ice.
Now he’s entering his second season as the head coach of the Hurricanes. He knows what it takes to get his players to do what they need to do. There is also a large group of players returining from last year.
These guys have already bought into what Rod is selling and they know what he wants. That should help the team get off to a good start. As well as help the new guys adapt to their new home.
