I wonder if Bon Jovi is as popular in Latvia as they are in North America. Wait - let me ask Ted Nolan, the newest coach in the NHL.

"Who says you can't go home?"

Nolan's last tour in Buffalo ended very, very badly some 16 years ago. He walked away from a low-ball contract offer from the recently-departed Darcy Regier with his dignity intact and the Coach of the Year trophy in his fist. He fully expected to land another coaching gig and quick.

Not so fast.

There were murmurs he was blackballed, something that has never been proven. But I think we all can't help but wonder, given his only high-level coaching gig has been Team Latvia.

Yes, Latvia.
