Why bother arguing over who was better between Rolston and Nolan?

Rolston was given a rookie roster, and made things worse with a passive game plan that nobody enjoyed playing. It made for the most noncompetitive Sabre team I ever watched.

Que Nolan, a more likable guy for sure, but lacking in game planning and/or in-game tactics. The guys want to play hard for him for sure, but they were barely any better the rest of the way, and much of the small difference can be attributed to sending rookies down in favor of signing vets.

If Nolan can bring in a bunch of savvy assistants and get a sound technical game plan in motion on the ice, then great. If not, I figure he doesn't deserve to stay long and probably won't. We'll see.
