Capitals promote MacLellan to GM, name Trotz coach

The Washington Capitals have finally announced who will be their next general manager and coach. The Capitals have promoted Brian MacLellan to general manager. MacLellan has NHL experience and has worked closely with the Hershey Bears. The Capitals have also hired Barry Trotz to be their coach.  Trotz is also an experienced hockey mind having coached the Nashville Predators for 15 seasons.

I like both these signings as both the MacLellan and Trotz are experienced hockey minds.  Both are still young in terms of General Managers and Coaches.  The Capitals press release has all the information on both men.
