Habs Watch - Muller named assistant coach
In a much anticipated and welcome move, Montreal's head coach Guy Carbonneau announced Kirk Muller as an assistant coach alongside Doug Jarvis and Roland Melanson. I heard this rumor early in the playoffs, and though Muller denied any such thoughts, I had strong suspicions this would come to be. So far, Muller's head coaching record with Queen's University has been average (8-13-1-2), but then the NHL is a different game altogether.
Muller has long been a favorite player of mine, combining skill with solid two-way hockey sense, and a great competitive spirit. He can only bring good things to the team, and now, I cannot wait for next season to begin! Hopefully, his passion, enthusiasm and grit will wear off on the players, allowing them to build on a great season this year.
