|Not much of a surprise here, Hynes has earned this award.|
Hynes has led the Pens to the best record, but not without any bumps along the way. At times up to seven of his top forwards were unavailable due to injury or recall but that didn't stop Hynes from adapting to his new players and getting the most out of them while they were in the AHL.
All in all, a great season for Hynes and the Penguins but I'm sure if you ask them they aren't satisfied with everything accomplished so far. There's still a few things left the Penguins would like to do.
