Love the shirt  :lol:

I once ate two orders of their chicken marsala with spaghetti on a dare.  I could barely move for like two days.

I can imagine...our son-in-law is a big eater, but one order of the Ovi special was as much as he could take...

Kuznetsov's been banned from international hockey for four years because of a positive test for cocaine at the World Championships earlier this year.

Does he know Patrick Chung?

The IIHF has gone down a dumb puritanical road if the heart of the issue is supposed to be PEDs.  Oh well, good for the Caps.

How does his suspension impact our cap hit, if at all?

Seriously...you don't think he'll get suspended by the NHL?

Seems rather odd, considering he already lied about it.

Quote
“Unlike the IIHF, cocaine is not considered a performance enhancing drug and is therefore not a Prohibited Substance under the NHL/NHLPA Performance Enhancing Substances Program.  Instead, it is considered a drug of abuse that is tested for and for which intervention, evaluation and mandatory treatment can occur in appropriate cases.

Maybe they tell him to sit out the first few games but doubt anything major happens. The LA Kings were notoriously doing coke for most of the late 2000s and everyone knew about it and nothing happened.

I agree.   I think the lying/cover up is what gets him some disciplinary action.

Plus, it's illegal, and a black eye for the league...

He's getting some discipline or it I'll just open the floodgates.  Remember when Richards was suspended for opioids?

Bettman seems more Machiavelli than Nancy Reagan, but who knows.  Personally I hate it when athletes get suspended for recreational drugs.

And Crosby consulted with the league on that, as he reportedly did on the other ones.

Exactly why this is not a PED and should not be treated as such.

From a fan perspective I prefer they do PEDs. Just don’t get caught.
