Barry Trotz is going to coach the New York Islanders. Or he’s definitely being hired by the expansion team in Seattle. Or maybe he’s just on his way to vacation. 

Whatever the case is — Trotz was spotted in the Newark and Seattle airports after the former Capitals coach abruptly resigned Monday, less than two weeks since winning the Stanley Cup. 

Trotz stepped down when he and the Capitals couldn’t agree on a long-term contract extension. 

The Islanders are the only team in the NHL with a coaching vacancy, while Seattle still needs league approval for expansion.
