Alternatively, from Pierre Lebrun:
Barry Trotz had a clause in his contract where if he won the Stanley Cup he could accept a two-year extension with a $300k bump in salary. Obviously since he was only making $1.5M, low by today's NHL coach's standards, a $1.8-million salary doesn't cut it. So Trotz stepped down.

So the Caps may not have wanted to pay him, he may want longer term, or he's simply retiring.
