Caps head coach Barry Trotz said he's not surprised at the length of the suspension given the team they are playing against.— Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) May 2, 2016
Really, Barry? Come on. You cannot be serious.
Some reasonable takes from a man who lives in the DC region.
Barry Trotz is very aware that Ted Leonsis signs his paychecks. Whether or not he believes it, he is toeing the party line.— Desolation Blevins (@ErikBlevins) May 2, 2016
Replace "Barry Trotz" with the name of every Caps coach since Ted Leonsis bought the team, and you will see that same rant verbatim.— Desolation Blevins (@ErikBlevins) May 2, 2016
the Donald Trump of Pittsburgh sports had to weigh in too:
I can't describe how pissed I am about Trotz' asinine comments. What a schmuck. Total loser, even if he wins. Clown shoes.— Mark Madden (@MarkMaddenX) May 2, 2016
It's not surprising though. Trotz is sticking up for his guy.
It's just annoying that this is becoming a regular thing. Tortorella, Vigneault, now Trotz.
Get bent. Go Pens.
