They both look cray.  But Hoffman's is more cray.

So, I'm assuming getting tickets from here on out to Eternity, will either be near to Impossible or, will cost you a small fortune.

are you talking about Caps tickets?  if so, no.  the season opener will be a tough get, and now you can add vegas to the list of "premium opponents", but otherwise... nah.

Rumor has is he called it a cheap piece of plastic that doesn't even protect his big Russian balls.

Ticket prices will def jump quite a bit.  I had season tickets from 2011-2015 and in 2011 and 2012 I could sell my seats for above face whenever I couldn't go.  2013-2015 I was taking a loss every time I had to sell.  I'm guessing most games will be selling out and ticket sellers will be making their money back and then some... unless we really start to suck.

This is very strange but you could tell there was something wrong in his interviews post cup win.  I suspect Trotz did not get along with Ted or a deal would have been done.  You just don't let a coach walk after winning a Cup.  Looks bad for the franchise.

Agreed.  I can't imagine they won't give the gig to Todd Reirden, but it was Trotz' to turn down. His contract contained an automatic two-year extension for winning the Cup, but the salary that went with it was not acceptable to him.  Considering the deals Babcock and Quenneville got, i'm guessing the Caps offer was nowhere near there.

He'll most likely be coaching the Islanders next year.  Not sure I'd want to clean up that mess but if the price is right I'm sure he will.
