Gingras last played in the NHL in 1989 and went on to play in Europe, the AHL and the ECHL.

the NHL today is nothing like the NHL of 1989. So like I said, little relevance to today. Might as well hire Perron, he was in the NHL just before 1989 and he worked on l'antichambre too didn't he? or was it 110%?
Gaston Gingras is a very good hockey coach. My friend who is "in" the Montreal hockey scene always had good things to say about him, and I've seen him running more than a couple of the Habs rookie camps recently. He also has a well known hockey school here in Montreal.

I agree. Roy might end up being a head coach or even a GM but he'll never want a secondary role.

What a pale argument!

And success as a player has nothing to do with coaching ability... see Gretzky's coaching resume for reference.

I am not saying Gingras would be a good coach but there are no good points in your argument.

To see who will replace Muller you have to look at ex-Ottawa Senator coaches or players.

This Canadiens organization is all based on the the old Senators one; Pierre Gauthier, Jacques Martin, Perry Pearn, Pierre Groulx, Randy Cunneyworth (Hamilton), Trevor Timmins.

No link to the Habs Glorious past there !!

I heard on CKAC a short while ago that Peter DeBoer, the ex-Panthers coach, could be a candidate. Martin hired him when he was GM in Florida and might be interested to have him beside him behind the bench.

Is Muller leaving for sure? Check out this tweet from Bob McKenzie:

Coaching Carousel: smart $ on Paul MacLean to OTT, Glen Gulutzan to DAL, Craig MacTavish or Mike Yeo to MIN. Not done deals yet, just IMO.

The biggest shock for me would be seeing Paul MacLean with an NHL job next season.

Whoa! Slow down, those interviews are grueling. I believe he's only going to leave if he gets a Head Coaching job. Why would he go be a assistant anywhere when he's all set here, MTL will match any assistant money plus, no doubt!

I thought Muller was a perfect fit for Ottawa, but their owner Melnynk is a bit of a head case, so giving the job to MacLean seems plausible.

Incidentally, DeBoer could end up as an assistant in Detroit, tweets McKenzie.

Basically ever since Murray became gm in Ottawa every decision he has made (including accepting the offer) has been bad. I see no reason why this should change now.

Wait, are you guys confusing John MacLean with Paul MacLean. Because Paul MacLean is Detroit's long-time assistant coach and arguably one of the assistants in the NHL most ready for the challenge of coaching his own team. John MacLean is the Devils' coach who got fired after a couple months this past year. Paul MacLean would be a great choice for Head Coach for any team with a vacancy.

According to this article the dallas stars and the ottawa senators might not opt for kirk muller as head coach.

http://www.ckac.com/hockey/nouvelles...ssi-81341.html

Their source is TSN here the TSN article.

Would love to keep Muller, even if it's just for one more season. He's valuable as an Assistant Coach, so the more we can get out of him, the better. He's a nice compliment to Martin in that they have very different styles.
