Yet another issue involves Coach Tippett, 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.
Add Mike Smith to the list and if I'm not mistaken Maloney's contract is up as well. If ownership is not settled either way, pretty sure they'll look for a more stable enviornemt never mind salaary (no cap on coaches or GMs!).
Despite how well the team as played the past 4 years under these circumstances if this keeps going on, I'd hate to see this team become a glorified AHL team....hooray for the floor
