Captain Kirk Named as Assistant Coach to Habs

According to and, Kirk Muller has been named as an assistant coach to the Montreal Canadiens. He will assist head coach Guy Carbineau, along with Doug Jarvis and Rolie Mellanson.

I think that this is a good addition to the coaching staff as he is more offensive minded than Carbo and Jarvis. He was a great leader, great captain and a great scorer.

Interesting side-note, the trade that brought Muller to the Habs included himself and fellow assistant coach Rollie Mellanson. They were aquired from the Devils for Stephan Richer and Tom Chorske.
