Were you holding out hope that the Boudreau situation would repeat itself? What coach that is on the chopping block would you seriously want them to go hire right now? This is a fine move, Rolston deserves a shot at an NHL job and you never know how great he could be.
...you also don't know how bad he can be. There's a reason there's not many NHL head coaches come in with 1 yr pro exp. There's a real good chance that Rolston gets his stuff handed to him pretty bad with this club. I just hope we get some bounce out of it to give us a shot at the playoffs.

As for the previous poster, I'll admit, the good situation might not have presented itself, but it also may have. Just about any present coach fired would be better than Rolston.
