from Francois Gagnon of Cyberpresse.ca (translated),
All indications are that Kirk Muller is in his final year in Montreal. Assistant coach since 2006, it sells the last months of the contract between the Canadian. A contract that took away valuable offers that were about to make him last summer, some NHL teams in the wake of the Canadian success in the playoffs.
Mandates as head coach in the AHL and assistant in the big league waited Muller, who played a leading role last spring.
The direction of the Canadian who preferred to keep him in Montreal rather than to entrust the reins of Bullbogs Hamilton - Randy Cunneyworth succeeded Guy Boucher - Muller began to fall a second season under the direction of Jacques Martin. Again this year, he shared the job with Perry Pearn.
Information credible guarantee that Muller would have clearly indicated an intention to stand on its own feet as soon as next year.
Crossed after the rise of two goals that allowed the Canadian to extract a precious point for the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday at the Bell Centre, Muller took a step back when the press asked him to confirm or deny the information gleaned in recent weeks. After a few seconds of reflection, he politely refused to answer the question.
