There is not a better GM or better coach for this team or any other struggling team, under water, clinging to life in the entire world. Maloney is the best in the business at finding players in the trash heap and Dave Tippett is the best in the business of getting the most out of them. Nobody can find a diamond in the rough like Don and nobody can polish them off and make them shine better than Tippett. If you are flat broke or bankrupt and still want a contender, you can't possibly do better than the battery of Maloney and Tippett.

If their contracts should happen to expire, I expect John Davidson will immediately fire every single executive and coach in Columbus and offer both Maloney and Tippett blank checks and carte Blanche to hire and fire at will. He'd be an idiot not to. Those two would have that team in the post season immediately in their first year. They'd have them winning rounds within three years.
Agreed, no way Jamison gets rid of Tippet or Maloney, it would just be insanely stupid and about the worst way to start his ownership.
