Pat Moules, Kitchener, Ont.

I was saddened to hear of Pat Burns' deteriorating health.

As the only three-time winner of the coach of the year award, it would be a wonderful gesture by the NHL to rename the Jack Adams Award as the Pat Burns Award.

The league should acknowledge this great coach's achievements while he can still appreciate them.
