4 thoughts on “Kirk Muller To Be The New Admirals Coach”

  1. I will never understand why assistant coaches in the NHL want to be the head coach in the AHL. Isn’t that a step down? I’m always confused when top coaches go to a lower league.

  2. It’s one of those catch-22’s….how can I get experience, if I don’t have a job, when I can’t get a job because I don’t have experience. If his goal is to one day be an NHL coach, I think coming down to the AHL to kick some butt for a couple of years will do wonders. Your 2011 coach of the year in the NHL was promoted from this level, if you recall. Plus, the coaches from the Texas Stars, Houston Aeros, and Manitoba Moose are all going to be head coaches of NHL teams this year.

    In short — success at this level looks good on a resume.
