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.
Rest assured there will be many teams interested in signing one or both! They may even have enough leverage and goodwill to pull off a deal where you take both of us or none at all! It is obvious that they compliment each other very nicely! But what GM is going to approach if his job may be in jeopardy with maloney in the mix? One thing is certain, PHX w/o this pair is in a world of hurt!
