John Tortorella has done an incredible job with this year's edition of the Blue Jackets.

He certainly needs to be in the Jack Adams conversation. With a 3-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes, the Blue Jackets find themselves in a playoff spot.

They've have scratched and clawed their way back into the conversation by playing as a team under Tortorella's direction. 

At 11-14-4 with several injuries, it looked like the season may have already been lost. Somehow, someway, the Blue Jackets have gone 13-2-4 since then and played fantastic hockey.

There's no question that Tortorella has been simply outstanding for the Blue Jackets, and he's a large reason for their success this year. His personality is huge and at times a little brash, but we wouldn't want it any other way.

Here's to 200 more.
