Y'know, maybe it's just me, but I'm not at all convinced Kirk Muller will be a great head coach. I'm not getting the same vibe I was getting from Boucher.

Whenever I hear we'll lose somebody talented in our org over this I cringe a little bit.

I agree. He's never been a head coach. He doesn't have his own system. He doesn't have an assistant that he's worked with that can slip into a role and compliment him well.

Boucher has been a head coach before he was hired with the Lightening. He brought in his 2 assistants from Hamilton to support him but Boucher / Yzerman also brought in Wayne Flemming who has over 30 years of coaching experience including over 10 in the NHL as an assistant coach.

Muller really needs to go to a developing team like Ottawa or somewhere where he can be given some breathing room before results are expected. NJ isn't the right fit for him imo, down the stretch last year, they proved that they are a playoff contention team.

I'm sure Boucher is a great coach but it sure helped to have Stamkos,Lecavalier, St louis and Hedman on the same team.

Yeah, because we keep blowing our prospects, picks and budget on players past their primes while trying frantically to get a cup at all costs for years on end.

Craig Mactavish is the front-runner for the Stars head coaching position.

Good, I hope he gets it. He's a smart guy, a winner and a leader. The Edmonton '06 run was fantastic and he was put into a **** situation after with a depleted team and mismanaged assets.

He'll do well in Dallas, that is if Dumbo the GM doesn't make more bad moves. I swear, Joe Nieuwendyk is going to be the end of Dallas.

I like MacTavish too.... I hope he finds work. MacTavish and Muller seem plar oposites to me. The classic stern discipinarian type vs. the players coach.

pls let us keep Cap'n Kirk

I just hate when I see people talk about how great the mgmt/coaching team have been in Tampa, they walked into a gold mine. I think they have done an adequate job, but I really think that a lot of people could have taken them to the 3rd round.

I don't hate Boucher and wouldn't have minded him coming to the Habs, but I don't think he was going to win a cup here right away as people think.

I agree...especially some of the morons in the media...Let's see a star studded team goes further than another team without those stars and missing Markov Pacioretty Gorges and to a certain extent Wisniewski also...

FYI: Just found out that Muller's house is for sale in Beaconsfield

It's almost 100% sure that he is gone!

Muller might be willing to be head coach in AHL instead of being assistant at NHL level.

I said it a while ago; the guy is likely the next head coach of the New Jersey Devils with Big Bird as his lead assistant.

Why am I convinced?

1) Met Kirk after the playoffs ended and he told he he'd love to stay in Montreal, but the moment he's offered a head coaching gig, he's taking it.

2) Mutual friend who speaks to him daily dropped the nugget above a few weeks ago re: NJ.

I don't see why everybody thought he was a goner, and how people in the media/on this board got started with all this "overpraising" of Muller. He's a good communicator and a good guy to have in a lockerroom, because of past experiences and good relations with other players. That being said, I find it ridiculous how people started to praise him for our system and our style in the last 2 years, when he clearly didn't have that good of an influence on these two aspects under Carbonneau. Martin and Pearn is an old combination and have proven to be effective together once before. Muller is a good ingredient to have in there, but those who want him to take over as a head coach and who are saying he's a great head coach should settle down. There's a HUGE difference between being a HC and an AC.

Couldn't he take it off the market if a job doesn't come up? It could just be trying to get ahead of the game if he does move.

If he doesn't get an offer this summer, I think he needs to take a head coaching job in the AHL if he ever wants to become an NHL head coach. In fact, I think he should do it regardless for the experience before taking on a NHL job.

Muller was on the ice this week at The Habs development camp so he may still come back as an assistant coach or is he just honouring his contract till June 30 ?
