Dave Tippett in the running to be Wild coach?

Dave Tippett is a solid bet to be next Wild coach. I'm told he's interviewing w/ the team this weekend. Richards, Laviolette also in running - James Mirtle

I can't say this would be a horrible decision. Tippett clearly had success in Dallas, making the playoffs 5 out of 5 years, though losing in the first round three years in a row. That being said, do we really want another re-tread, or would they be better off starting completely from scratch?
