No, it had to do with Hasek and Nolan hating one another and Dom pulling a hissy-fit that ultimately ousted the team from the playoffs and then cost both Muckler and Nolan their jobs.
Back to the topic, Rolston might just impress enough if he can get blood from some of the stones on this team. Porter works hard (essentially Ellis with a little bit more speed), Gerbe and Stafford have skated better under him so far (not that isn't simply getting out from under the previous coach), and he's had success with Foligno and McNabb in the past. Maybe he gets them rowing in the right direction.
That said, I suspect he's back in Rochester next fall.
