Fresh off a Stanley Cup victory, Barry Trotz has found himself a new bench to coach behind. According to Darren Dreger, the New York Islanders are taking on Trotz as their new bench boss. The move comes after the long anticipated firing of Garth Snow and Doug Weight, and also following the hiring of hockey management wiz Lou Lamoriello.
Following the hiring of Trotz, the internet instantly shifted its focus to another main storyline of the Isles offseason – what is going to happen with longtime Isles superstar John Tavares?
Many speculated that Lamoriello’s hiring boded well for the chances of resigning their best player, and Trotz has much of the similar reaction. It looks like people are more sold than ever a potential Tavares return to the island.
