I have heard that if the team were to go to QC, that would not be a preferred destination for Tip. That said, perhaps both sides have agreed to see where the team may go, or if the team may go? To your first point , what harm does it do Tippett if he signs a renegotiated deal to stay in PHX, or with an opt out if the team relocates?
If the team moves to QB Patrick Roy will be the GM. The NHL won't want to load any contracts onto the team that a new owner will have to assume. If its a local buyer he can reup Maloney and Trippet if he wants.
