Walking away after a Stanley Cup... 

Guess it beats waiting at a curb for a taxi with your bags...

Still waiting for the editorial cartoon of the Caps logo waiting at the curb after being "fired"...

Pretty unusual to see a team move on like this after a Stanley Cup win, but I have to imagine that Trotz is getting close to retiring.

He wanted a five year deal. Didn?t take long to start asking for more . 2 weeks.

He apparently had a clause that included a 2 year extension with a $300k bump...  which would have been a tiny increase for a Stanley Cup win, really...

I can see him waiting for the season to begin and a prime opportunity to present itself.  The Islanders spot isn't Prime, especially if they don't retain Tavares...

Good hire.  Islanders had a solid season in 2014-15 and have slowly been regressing ever since.... Trotz should be a positive addition.

Loss of Taveres will be hard to overcome tho

And that Ladd contract is probably the worst in the league.  Did we ever dodge a bullet there.

Very true.  Barzal, Bailey, Lee and Eberle should be able to hold down the offensive production for them.

I hope the Islanders surprise the pundits.
