Paul Maurice Leaves Note For Coaching Replacement Kirk Muller: 'Good Luck'

It's not easy to lose your job, especially when your job is a very public one. For an NHL head coach like Paul Maurice, formerly of the Carolina Hurricanes, it can be a frustrating and disappointing experience. 

But Maurice has been there before -- in the exact same town, actually -- and he also knows what it's like to be the man replacing another. That probably helps to explain his note to Kirk Muller, new Hurricanes head coach, which was spotted in the locker room on Tuesday.
