I would also fold Tippett into this category of coaches still under contract with another organization, though Tippett controls his own destiny.

I happen to like Bylsma. Up until this past Bruins series, Bylsma's failures have been brought on almost single-handedly by his goaltender. He's certainly not a defense-first coach, but who's fault is it that Fleury's SV% inexplicably plummets in the postseason? No one knows how he will fair at the NHL level without Crosby and Malkin, but he did do very well as head coach in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
