Friedman on Flames head coaching: “The word is from some of the people is that they do plan on giving legit chances to their 3 internal candidates, Ryan Huska, Kirk Muller, who I believe has interviewed with a couple of other teams, and also Mitch Love, the 2-time AHL COTY”.

Despite his brilliant professional career in the NHL (both as a coach and player), Kirk Muller wasn’t a head coach for very long. From 2011-2012 to 2013-2014, he was the Hurricanes’ pilot, but that’s about it.
By the way, Calgary is looking for a coach and Muller is among the candidates. That’s what Elliotte Friedman mentioned.
If Craig Conroy really wants to hire the next Flames head coach from among the in-house options, I don’t think Muller is the best option. Mitch Love, head coach of the Wranglers in the AHL, has won the last two titles for the league’s best head coach. Love doesn’t have Muller’s NHL experience, however, and in the end, that may be what tips the scales.
In short, the team’s new GM, Craig Conroy, will have his work cut out for him this summer.
