Barry Trotz will take his leverage elsewhere.
The head coach of the Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals, who reportedly almost lost his job at multiple points in a tumultuous and yet breakthrough season for the franchise, has decided to step away from his position, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.
Washington soon confirmed Trotz departure:
Barry Trotz informed the organization today of his decision to resign as head coach of the Washington Capitals. We are obviously disappointed by Barry’s decision, but would like to thank Barry for all his efforts the past four years and for helping bring the Stanley Cup to Washington. Barry is a man of high character and integrity and we are grateful for his leadership and for all that he has done for our franchise.
Trotz earned the job security that Washington was reluctant to give him at the start of the season by leading the club to its first championship. As Friedman notes, the title triggered a two-year extension, but at below market value. The two sides failed to come to terms when they tried to work out a more suitable extension, and Trotz was given permission to explore other opportunities.
Washington’s unwillingness to give Trotz a contract that the coach deemed fair is somewhat bizarre given his accomplishment, but also unsurprising in its context. While it appeared that a title had healed all wounds, and mended the differences that existed between Trotz, GM Brian MacLellan and the executive staff, it’s believed that the two sides were destined for a split long before the Stanley Cup run.
Perhaps on the open market, Trotz can better wield his championship clout to garner a deal that compares more favourably to the top tier of NHL coaching hires.
However it’s not as if an intense bidding war will soon begin. Aside from the Capitals, only the Islanders are without a head coach at the moment, with the Flames, Hurricanes, Stars and Rangers already filling their positions.

It doesn't seem like Trotz has a ton of leverage at the moment. He might do well to sit out a year, play analyst somewhere and come back when there are more openings. That relationship was strained for a couple of years now.

Islanders if he wants it I suppose. That would likely be enough to keep Tavares in town as well.

I can't imagine any player or coach wanting to be with the Islanders.  It's been a second class organization pretty much since Wang bought them 20 years ago.  While it's not his fault that Nassau was bankrupt and wouldn't do anything to improve or rebuild the arena, it is his fault that the team has been horrible.

His individual value is at it's highest..... in a market where every good coaching gig is already filled, as well as most of the bad ones.

Has a coach ever quit after winning the Stanley Cup? (not back the next season)

Mike Keenan left the Rangers weeks after winning the Stanley Cup in 1994.

Harry Sinden, as well. Quit after the Bruins Cup win in 1970 due to the team's refusal to give him a raise. Had other offers but coached Team Canada in the Summit Series. Later was rehired by the Bruins as GM, which he held for decades.

He'll be the 4th highest paid coach and he's the 5th to leave after winning a Cup. As well as those mentioned there was also Scotty Bowman who retired after leading Detroit to the Cup.
Not a slam dunk when I predicted he'd take that job but it was the only one currently available and no way was Trotz going to sit around and wait for Seattle or for next season and have teams forget about him.
It's always what have you done for me lately and fresh off a cup win he could almost write his own ticket. Going to the Islanders and Wang he might very well have.
