Dave Tippett On His Contract Status

from Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic,

“It’s a bit like a player in the last year of his contract,” Tippett said. “There’s times you’d probably like to sign, but you’re not sure if you’re going to sign. That’s kind of where it is right now.”

Tippett hasn’t decided whether he’d take a one-year contract if it becomes clear the Coyotes will last in Glendale for at least that time. And yet, the Coyotes are his top choice.

“I haven’t thought about moving yet,” he said. “… If Phoenix offers me a contract and it looks like we’re going to keep moving in the right direction, then I’ll look at it.”

Despite the restrictions that appear to be in place for a fifth straight summer, Tippett hasn’t soured on the idea of guiding this group, but he craves resolution. And change.

“It’d be great to have an opportunity to take it to the next level,” he said, before offering this understatement: “To get it there, I think you’re going to need ownership at some point.”
