The penalty problem is it Gulutzan?
In Gulutzan's two seasons the Stars finished 2nd and tied for 5th in most minor penalties taken.
In Crawford's two seasons the Stars finished 16th and 24th in minor penalties taken.
In Tippett's final season the Stars finished 16th in minor penalties taken.
I think that the coach was not the problem. He can only work with what he is given. I think he should be given a chance with some new players. Alot of teams are going to have to reduce salary, and some good players should be available. At least I hope.
The only problem with Tippett is that hiring him would be similar to the hiring of Nieuwy in that it's another person that was here when the team was good. Sure it may not have been the same teams (Cup team vs post Cup teams), but still it's the same idea.
