Update, 12:30 p.m.:
Looks like it's former Islander coach Ted Nolan taking over as Latvia coach not Keenan.
...h/t to James W. of Blue Line Station.
Original Post, July 28th:
Kirovs Lipmans, president of Latvia's Hockey Federation, says Mike Keenan may soon become Latvia's national team coach.
...does this mean Keenan's show on MSG with Tortorella is going to be shutdown? Actually I really like Keenan doing the post game. Hope he can continue doing that while coaching the Latvia team.
...you know it's a slow news day when this is what I'm posting about.
He's going to have to learn how to yell "You're no Chelios!" in Latvian.
I wonder how you say weasel in Latvian.
Oh, and why Latvia? Is Keenan Latvian? They aren't known for producing hockey stars.. I couldnt name one.
@DanW Come on, such greats as Artus Irbe and Sandish Ozolinsh were latvian. And who can forget the exploits of Sergei Zoltok! Latvia is a veritable hotbed of hockey, especially appealling to a curse-breaking Stanley Cup coach!
@JohnSikulaIII every time 24/7 is mentioned I giggle a little. I cannot wait to see Torts scream at Ani as Hank does his hair in the background and Gabby says nothing. Ever.
@JohnSikulaIII I have a feeling that 24/7 will be much better than "behind the Bench".
@gravey94 Uuuuuugh, please don't remind me about Ozolinsh.
