Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Mike Chambers of All Things Avs,
Phoenix Coyotes coach Dave Tippett, whose contract with the troubled team expires June 30, is currently in Europe, serving as an assistant coach for Canada at the World Championship, and probably wondering where he will coach in the NHL next season.
The Avalanche has got to be an option, particularly when Canadian centers Matt Duchene and Ryan O’Reilly of the Avs serve as constant reminders that Colorado has a solid young team and is in need of a coach.
In my mind – and others who I have discussed it with – Tippett would be a home-run hire for the Avalanche.
