Report: Dave Tippett to land in either Edmonton or Buffalo

Now that the GM search is behind us, we move forward to operation: Find a Coach 2019. Elliotte Friedman spoke on Sportsnet 960 in Calgary this morning to give his take on Dave Tippett’s situation.

“I’ve reported and heard that Dave Tippett was a very high contender [in Edmonton]. I think he could potentially still be in the mix in Buffalo too.”

It’s been no secret that Tippett is likely on Ken Holland’s coaching list. Tippet parted ways as the Arizona Coyotes head coach in 2017 and has been on the market ever since.

“I would say he’s probably getting one of those two jobs.”

As said by Bob Stauffer on Wednesday, other coaches that may be on Ken Hollands list include Jay Woodcroft, Trent Yawney, Glen Gulutzan, Lane Lambert, and Todd Nelson. If you ask me there are a lot of decent options to pick from out of the pile. I personally don’t know how well Tippett would fit here in Edmonton.

With Buffalo and Edmonton both being on the shortlist for Dave Tippett, I’m very curious who would want him more, and to see how this all shakes down in the end. Could you see Tippett finding success with the Edmonton Oilers? Let me know in the comments.
