07:15 AM ET 05.09 | Change is coming to Colorado, perhaps sweeping change that may mean a bigger role for Joe Sakic but certainly means a new coach. 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.

Damn good coach who was wronged in Dallas by the previous GM.

But do they have any NHL players to coach?

He did wonders with an underachieving Coyotes team... I think he can do the same in Denver, if the team follows his lead.

Well, there is a very experienced coach available right now, he's won over 600 games, coached the US national team at two Olympic games, and once made it to the Stanley Cup finals, although his team got swept. His name rhymes with Jon Bilson.

LOL - Stop it, we like Otis.

Crawford was a screaming idiot. Tippett is down to earth and with what this cheapo management gave him won big last year and was in the playoffs three years straight before this year. Good coach.
