The biggest issue with Tippett is it's very dangerous to wait. The NHL owns Phoenix, they've made it very clear that they want a stable franchise, while they find a buyer for the team. Tippett done very well there and evidently likes the area a lot.
What happens if he never becomes available? Vigneault won't wait too long either--Dallas is interested in him too. The organization has to make decision soon--unless they already have and are going through the motions.
