Friedman added that another team had granted an interview to the former player.

However , the Stanley Cup winner with the Habs in 1993 has been employed by the Calgary Flames as an associate coach for two years and the team will have to determine his fate. New GM Craig Conroy is looking for a pilot and once identified, Darryl Sutter's successor behind the bench is expected to choose his assistants.

Muller coached the Carolina Hurricanes from 2011-2014 and was never able to lead his troops into the playoffs.
