Yet another issue involves
he is in the final year of his deal, the league has said nothing to him regarding an extension. Put yourself in his shoes, he is a FA at the end of this truncated season and I`m certain he will command a nice pay increase from any team other than the Coyotes! He has his future to be concerned about, my bet is he signs elsewhere fora nice raise, leaving Butthead no choice but to move the team. A Tippett less coyote team has little bite to it and I think that would be a concensus opinion by most Coyote observers.
If the NHL is still owning this team when it comes time for Tippett to resign, he is gone. There is no way Tippett stays with the Coyotes. Not after the job he has done with that team and the price he could get by going elsewhere. Heck, there are a lot of fans in Winnipeg clamoring for Noel to be fired and replaced with Tippett after the season. He will have no shortage of places he can go to next year.
