The Capitals got the man atop their coaching wish list in Barry Trotz, while also staying in-house for their GM hire with Brian MacLellan.
The Capitals are seeking a new voice behind the bench. Barry Trotz is among the most respected in hockey. But would Washington's star fit his system?
The Capitals spoke with Barry Trotz on Tuesday. He spent the previous 16 years coaching the Nashville Predators.
In 15 seasons with the Predators, Trotz's teams went 557-479-100 with 60 ties. The Predators reached the Stanley Cup playoffs in seven of Trotz's 15 seasons behind the bench but managed to win just two of their nine playoff series.
If the Capitals want an experienced coach, there is a small pool of candidates with a depth of experience.
The Nashville Predators have extended their affiliation agreement with the American Hockey League's Milwaukee Admirals through the 2016-17 season.
Nashville Predators coach Peter Laviolette already has brought the Stanley Cup to the South before and is eager to try to do it again.
He coached Carolina to a Stanley Cup in 2006 and took Philadelphia to the Stanley Cup finals in 2010. He was fired in October after the Flyers lost their first three games of the season.
Now that Peter Laviolette is the head coach of Nashville, will the Capitals step up their search for a coach and GM?
