Muller won't be back next year

http://www.cyberpresse.ca/sports/hoc...-prochaine.php

Basically says that he had offers in the past and wants to be a head coach.

Coincidence, just last night I was thinking could see Muller in Ottawa next year.

I don't hate Martin or anything, but I'd can him and take Muller behind the bench in a heartbeat.

Would hate to see him go. Always good to have a player's coach around to balance things out. That and he's been a big part of the PK the last couple seasons

That would be a disaster , you can't make an long time assistant coach head coach like that, on the same team.Guy Boucher should really be behind our bench right now but we're stuck with the penguin , he sucks , now hire Lindy Ruff plz.

My heart sank while clicking on this thread.

This might sound sensationalist, but we're going to be making the same mistake with Muller as we did with Boucher.

Didn't read article, too tired, but good for Muller. He deserves a chance and we only hire billingual coaches so...sucks for us, but as FiveForDrawingBlood suggested, Ottawa is a big possibility.

Would like to see him get a chance with someone as head coach.

He has the passion and knowledge, he may be ready.

Put Perry Pern as assistant coach of forwards and power play and bring Hall Gill as the defense and pk coach!

He deserves to get a chance somewhere, my only hope is that we replace him by another guy that already played the game with the Habs.

I think Muller is ready to coach in the NHL, I always pictured him behind our bench, still a long way to the end of the season and anything is possible, so let's keep our fingers crossed and hope he stays with the Habs long term. If he is to go then I wish him all the best he deserves to be a head coach

With all the rumours that have been out there in the past. I don't think this news should be a surprise to anyone.

Be careful what you wish for - for all those *****ing about Brunet on RDS - imagine him behind our bench?

Now you may puke!

Brisebois could be good, but a guy like Desjardins could depending on his contract with the Flyers (if he's still there) could be a good option.

Actually it could motivate the players to actually want to get faster on the ice. Our goalies will be so afraid to be pulled and have to go to the bench that they'll play like superstars.

For those of us who were around in 93 this is hard to swallow.

But, it's a business and you have to understand the guy for wanting to move forward with his career.

One of the true warriors of the bleu-blanc-rouge right there. Love having him behind the bench. Let's hope we can pull off some more theatrics this spring to give him a last good playoff run in Montreal.

Get the barf bag ready or run for the toilet cause Martin is here to stay. I would love to see Muller behind the bench but unless he is an expert french talker in private, then I believe he will be a head coach elsewhere. Here is a short list of where I believe he will go.

1. New Jersey. With Muller being one of the Devils greatest picks and his success with the Devils and the fact that lemaire is just a band-aid, I believe this to be his first destination if he is to leave.

2. Toronto. You have to believe that Wilsons tenure will be over after this season, though him and Burke are like Oprah and Gail, I believe his time is up behind the bench there.

3. Ottawa. With Melnik saying to the Ottawa papers that a plan is already in place for next year, I believe Muller to be on their short list if he's available.

Of course he may just end up staying here but he definitely deserves a shot somewhere, He has been great in his role here but will sadly never be the head coach because of the language thing.

Definitely between Ottawa and New Jersey. Makes sense on many levels either way. I don't see Burke turning away from Wilson as early as next season; more glaring problems with decision-making and execution (onus on players) as opposed to apparent lack of preparation and strategy (onus on coaching).

I believe Desjardins said last year he wasn't interested in coaching for now has he want to spend time with his family.

Brisebois maybe ? don't seem like a Jacques Martins type of guy imo.

Maybe JM will take an offer from Ottawa to be GM and we can keep Captain Kirk
