"I've always said I've got to be comfortable; in order to be comfortable, I've got to be myself," the 53-year-old Julien said. "As a player, I felt things. As a coach, I kind of remember those things. At the same time, when you are the coach, you are the guy that gives the direction so it's a fine line."

Quenneville, who turns 55 in September, coached the Blackhawks to the best record in the NHL in his fifth season in Chicago. Under his leadership, the Blackhawks ended a 49-year drought when they won the Cup in 2010.

Like Julien, Quenneville's coaching style also is influenced by his playing career.

"As a player, it's way more fun being a player than a coach," he said. "But at the same time, really enjoyed coaching in the different places I've been as a coach. I just think I've been fortunate to work with some great people, some great organizations. I've learned from some great people along the way."
