Besides everything else, it seems that Tippett and Maloney are not going to re-sign until they know what the future holds.
11. Another coaching/management decision being watched closely is in Phoenix, where Maloney, head coach Dave Tippett and their staffs are unsigned after this season. It's believed the league was more than willing to extend them, but they want to know the future of the organization before committing.
As has been noted before, beyond everything else, this long term of ownership by the NHL is undermining the very foundations of the franchise. It is a tribute to the remarkable managerial and coaching performance of Maloney and Tippett that the team has been as competitive as it has for the past few years. But a team in limbo with a payroll near the bottom can't maintain on-ice performance for very long. The NHL has created an absolute travesty.
