Exactly one month ago, after relieving Adam Oates and George McPhee of their duties as coach and general manager, Capitals owner Ted Leonsis made it clear his team needed a new voice and a fresh set of eyes.
Today at a 12:30 p.m. news conference that will be aired live on Comcast SportsNet, the Capitals will introduce Barry Trotz as the new voice of the Capitals.
But is Brian MacLellan the fresh set of eyes they were seeking?
Before hiring MacLellan, Leonsis and Dick Patrick brought in Boston Bruins assistant general manager Don Sweeney and Nashville Predators assistant general manager Paul Fenton for interviews and decided that with 13 years of experience with the Capitals MacLellan had just as much insight into what the Caps need to become a Stanley Cup contender.
Time will tell if they are right.
