Trotz energized by new challenges with Capitals

Tuesday, 07.29.2014 / 3:00 AM / Five Questions With…

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NHL.com's Q&A feature called "Five Questions With …" runs every Tuesday during the regular season and every other Tuesday during the offseason. We talk to key figures in the game today and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features Washington Capitals coach Barry Trotz:

To say Barry Trotz is re-energized might be the understatement of the offseason.

After 15 seasons with the Nashville Predators, Trotz is in the process of closing his home in Tennessee so he can fill his new home in Arlington, Va. He lived the coach's dream, being in one city long enough that some of his kids could go from first grade through college without moving. Now he gets to start over, and that has provided him with energy and impatience this offseason.

"You're coming to a new organization and they don't know how you do things, so you have to go through the teaching mode," Trotz told NHL.com. "You want to have your stamp. You're meeting new people. There's new energy. You're forging new relationships. To me those things really motivate me to get everything in place and get going."

Trotz has been working toward that goal this summer by poring over film and stats to learn as much as he can about the players he has in Washington. He has met personally with many of them, including captain Alex Ovechkin.

Trotz's meeting with Ovechkin last month is where the following Q&A begins. It extends into questions that led to his thoughts on Washington's seemingly endless search for a second-line center and the futures of two budding stars on his new roster.

Here are Five Questions with … Barry Trotz:

Trio of Flyers prospects patiently waiting their turn

Tuesday, 07.29.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Scott Laughton experienced the thrill of making an NHL opening-night roster twice. Shayne Gostisbehere got his first taste of professional hockey last season, as did Robert Hagg, who made his North American pro debut in 2013-14.

All the experiences did was make three key members of the future of the Philadelphia Flyers hungry for more.

"Every day I think about it," Laughton said. "Just try to work toward it."

Laughton, the Flyers' first-round pick (No. 20) in the 2012 NHL Draft, could be the closest of the three to making the team. He already has NHL experience, playing five games with Philadelphia at the start of the 2012-13 season.

Top prospect Bennett focused on making Flames

Tuesday, 07.29.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Aaron Vickers - NHL.com Correspondent

CALGARY -- Sam Bennett isn't about to make any guarantees.

With two months until the opening of training camp, the No. 4 pick in the 2014 NHL Draft isn't feeling entitled to a spot on the Calgary Flames roster.

"I'm not going to say I'm going to make the team," Bennett said during Calgary development camp. "But that's definitely my goal and I'm just going to go out there and try my hardest to do whatever I can to make it. Whatever happens, happens.

"Definitely, I'm going to do whatever I can."

"I was told there's a definite opportunity," Reimer said. "That's the mindset I'm coming in with, to really take advantage of the opportunity that's been given and earn the No. 1 spot."

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.

— New Jersey Devils center Scott Gomez on former teammate Martin Brodeur, who will announce his retirement Thursday
