In this week’s One-on-one, The Gazette’s Kevin Mio sat down with Canadiens assistant coach and former team captain Kirk Muller.
Here is a sample of some of the questions Muller answered:
What do you think is harder, playing or coaching in the NHL?
"It’s easier on the body being a coach, but it’s easier on the mind being a player (deep laugh)."
Have you received any advice or inspiration on what it takes to be a successful NHL coach?
"I think it’s more I have just kind of picked up on different positive traits from different guys I have had. Jacques Demers, the great thing about him to me was that he was a really good communicator and his door was always open. He always welcomed input and I think that is sort of what my attitude is as well; to listen to your players and I think that is something I take from a guy like Jacques."
