If we get Tippet, size at center and offensive D's are an issue for us. We are short of both compared to what Tippet are used too.
Tippet will turn Boyle in Handzal if he is hired. IMO he is the best candidate for the job, runs a very similar system, except he has never had the horses on offense as he did in Dallas, and he got a lot out of those teams.
In Dallas he had the offense but unreliable goaltending (Turco towards the end was a sieve), and in PHX, he had great goaltending, but not enough scoring. He would be walking into a dream scenario in NY for his style of play.
