Pretty sad if he’s telling the truth and if it’s trace amounts, depending upon the substance, that should be provable. Like our own secondhand marijuana smoking gold medal wining ski boarder, right.
The only HW the Canucks need

Just a guess, but with appeal denied, could it be a banned masking agent used to suppress levels of a PED.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Does anybody know where to find the NHL Prohibited Substances List? (You'd think they'd want to make it easy for the players and their trainers to find.)

This seemed to imply that they were just going to follow the WADA list:
http://www.nhl.com/ice/page.htm?id=26397

I couldn't find creatine on the WADA site at all, whether as a banned substance or metabolite for which they would test.

Might be a year too long. Hell of a player. Might have been a better deal at four years and 40 million. That said I’m not sure how the Jets could let him go seeing as they are in their Stanley Cup competitive window for the next few seasons. His big breakout was last year but he averaged over 70 points a year for a few years before that. That’s certainly worth 8 mill a year in today’s market.

Dahlin did pretty well in his Buffalo debut; two goals, one assist, lots of hits.
