As coach of the Washington Capitals. His contract was elapsing after the season but a clause offering a two-year extension with a modest salary raise was triggered, since he won the Stanley Cup. He resigned two weeks after winning the Cup, feeling that he deserved to be a top-paid NHL coach. Shortly after, he signed a 5-year contract with the New York Islanders for $4M/year.
