I'm not opposed to it, but I would definitely want them to interview/talk to Roy and Eakins. There's no question Rolston has preformed well since taking over. There were definitely rough stretches and we are definitely riding a high point at the moment. So I want to wait till the final 9 games are played to see how we end up.

Eakins and Roy are both good with the younger players. They both bring recognition, as Roy is Patrick Roy, and Eakins has been the hottest HC candidate for the past year/year and a half. Rolston brings his own as well, being a great USA Junior coach. Coaching some of the top USA players from 2004-2011 (JVR, Jack Johnson, Fowler, Colin Wilson, McDonagh, Shattenkirk, Kane, Eric Johnson)

I'm starting to warm to the idea, but let's see how the season ends before we do anything crazy. Like I said, we're on a hot streak right now, I'm sure everyone would be singing a different tune if he were to go 2-7 in the final 9 games.
