In my opinion, he is the best coach in the NHL. I would love to have Tippett in Philadelphia. Look at how successful he's been with the cap-floor Coyotes roster for the past few years (last season in particular). His system also fit extremely well with Bryzgalov. I like Laviolette, but if Tippett is available, we need to get him in Philly.
Why do we need to keep drastically changing this team's approach? With tippet, we would have gone full circle from Hitchcock over a 10 year period and gotten nowhere.

Laviolette is a fine coach. He deserves more than 3 seasons.
