Look at the short leash guys like Rundblad and Miele have. You can make an argument that those players undermine the system, but the system also undermines the future of the organization. If you are an average talent looking to get NHL time to develop, you aren't going to get it under Tippett.
Dallas has not made the playoffs since then and the coyotes have made the playoffs every year since Tip arrived. Also, I would say, Tip has done more with less, because of his system based defense first approach. The Coyotes have over achieved for sure, especially last year. Runblad has to be responsible defensively for him to stick, he was -2, so he was sent down. Forwards have to be responsible too. I think next game stone plays and so does Schlemko, so they either play 7 or sit somebody else, Klesla, Yandle, we shall see.....
