Trotz coy on Capitals future: ‘I love what I do’

DULLES, Va. — Barry Trotz thought of mentors and friends Jack Button, Tommy Ebright, David Poile and Wayne Fleming when he lifted the Stanley Cup over his head.

The Washington Capitals coach didn’t think about his future. It’s the same approach he has taken all season and throughout the playoffs.

“I wasn’t getting consumed with what was said, what my future holds, whatever,” Trotz said. “I’m in a pretty good spot.”

Trotz was in as good a spot as imaginable Friday, as he and the Capitals landed back home in the Washington area with the Stanley Cup in tow. The celebration will last through the parade Tuesday, but once that’s finished, the work begins for Brian MacLellan to try to re-sign Trotz, top defenseman John Carlson and other free agents.

What does the future hold for Barry Trotz?

The Cup-winning coach is without a contract for next season. Will he stay with the Caps? Join a new team? Take a gap year? We assess his options.
