Ken Hitchcock won the Jack Adams Award for coach of the year.
Jaro Halak and Brian Elliott were the William Jennings trophy winners.

JD did a lot of great things for the blues and the fans, but I think regardless we are better with Armstrong and Stillman at the front of our office and will see some good improvements.

Not sure I agree here, I like Armstrong as the GM, but JD excelled at public relations, that is something the NHL and Blues need right now to get public support. Stillman, not so much.
