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.
Hmmm, didn't Doan say something similar about not resigning until the ownership situtauion is settled?
In all seriousness though, I don't see Maloney and Tippett sitting on the fence as long as Shane did.
If this is still in flux, hopefully they'll bolt the minute their contracts expire - make a statement and this needed to end yesterday.
