    I think the thing that upsets me most is the perception this gives VGK after the Schmidt suspension. I don't want to hear the dumb jokes. I think they're stupid with Patriots, and I don't even follow the Patriots.

    I agree. I think Schmidt took one for the team last year. This is on the training staff.

    Oh, so he’s saying he openly knows that he took the supplement. Okay........he’s been taking this supplement for 4 years and now finally gets busted.

    Just thinking maybe I've been a bit too hard on Zeke. He may be telling the truth about having taken the same supplement for several years. Could be that his buddy Igor mixed up a bad batch in his bathtub in Novosibirsk and Zeke had no idea. :thumbu: :nod:

    Not gonna lie, I'll become very suspicious when Glass starts having to shave.

    It's been kind of weird not having 10 threads about 'falling back to earth' or unfair expansion rules.

    I told him not to drink the tap water,

    "What's the point of this game anyway? It's just another chapter in the pointless rivalry between Vegas and San Jose. They built a mini mall, so we built a bigger mini mall. They made the world's largest pizza, so we burned down their city hall."


    "Yeah, they swore they'd get us back by spiking our water supply. But they didn't have the guts."

    NHL really doesn't do much testing at all, so for one team to have two guys busted is a big slip-up.

    Also, there's a pretty strong agreement the players' union has (similar to the NFL) where the testing agency cannot state what a player has been busted for. This means that a player (or an agent in this case) can come through and say "tainted supplement" without having to provide evidence.

    This is not the case for cycling -- WADA/USADA announce the ban and what it was for.

    Tainted supplements can happen, and if/when they do, people really fight the suspension. This one seems... opportunistic.

    Also, there's a very real benefit to taking banned substances for years: you can train harder and reap the rewards, even after you've stopped taking the banned substance.

    It's really hard to imagine playing a full NHL schedule -- with the beating these guys take -- "au naturale." :)
