A head coach in the NHL is assigned a great amount of duties when he first takes over a club. When he exceeds those expectations, he becomes a candidate for the Jack Adams Award.

The trophy is awarded to the coach that is “adjudged to have contributed the most to his team's success," according to NHL.com.

A few names quickly pop into mind when the discussion is brought up, but these five men exemplified what it really means to be a bench boss in the NHL.

Our ranking will be based off each coach’s biggest contribution to his team’s success this year.
