Trotz, Caps be­gin con­tract talks

New Haven Register (New Haven, CT) - - SCOREBOARD -

Barry Trotz and the Wash­ing­ton Cap­i­tals have be­gun dis­cussing a con­tract ex­ten­sion that would keep the end­ing free agent coach around for next sea­son and be­yond af­ter win­ning the Stan­ley Cup. Trotz and gen­eral man­ager Brian MacLel­lan met the day af­ter the Cap­i­tals' cham­pi­onship pa­rade to talk about a new deal. Trotz wants to be back, and gen­eral man­ager Brian MacLel­lan wants to sign the 55-year-old to an ex­ten­sion. Now it's a mat­ter of them get­ting a deal done. Trotz and MacLel­lan met Wed­nes­day to be­gin dis­cussing a new con­tract. It's un­com­mon for an es­tab­lished coach of a con­tend­ing team to go through a lame-duck sea­son and even rarer for a Cup­win­ner to not be back the next sea­son.
