It turns out that it was Michel Therrien who first reached out to Kirk Muller, which can only be seen as an encouraging move by the head coach.

No matter how you slice it, this is a very encouraging hire for the Canadiens. Michel Therrien identified weaknesses in his coaching, and asked for help.

There's no guarantee that Muller will right the ship, but this is a great first step. The team needed a power play specialist, new blood on the coaching staff, and a good communicator. Muller checks all those very important boxes.
