Getting rid of Tippet may go down as one of the biggest mistakes in franchise history. We need more structure to our game.
Is Tippett really the answer? If you factor in Avery, the Stars and Coyotes had virtually the same level of spending this year. The Coyotes won one more game and finished with four more points and I don't think they had nearly the man games lost to injury that Dallas did.
It's fine to say that Crawford's system isn't the answer, but I don't think Tippett was consistently better when he was in Dallas or would be with the personnel the Stars have now.
