Capitals Introduce Trotz and MacLellan

Capitals Introduce Trotz and MacLellan

iStockPhoto/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) — The Washington Capitals introduced their 17th head coach, Barry Trotz, and new general manager, Brian MacLellan, on Tuesday.
Trotz and MacLellan were hired on Monday and will have the task of turning around a team that has failed to bring home a Stanley Cup.
MacLellan replaces long-time general manager George McPhee, who spent 17 seasons with the team.
“I am a different person,” MacLellan said on Tuesday.  “I have different experiences, different education, different playing experience.  I think all of that stuff forms your attitudes and philosophies.”
Trotz coached in Nashville for 15 seasons, but was fired in April.  Prior to Nashville, Trotz served as Washington’s AHL bench boss in Baltimore and Portland from 1992-97.
“I was looking for someone that had those same high standards of qualities,” Trotz said.  “When I met this group, I was pretty well sold.”
Trotz is also looking forward to working with Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin, who has three league MVP’s and led the league in scoring this season with 51 goals. 
“My job as a coach is to find a way to allow Alex and the other players to reach their potential as a group and be able to play together,” Trotz said.
The Capitals finished 38-30-14 this season and missed the playoffs for the first time since the 2006-07 season.
