Go Habs Go - Fan Forum 09/10

Recommended Posts

My fury happened on Saturday.

Last night felt like the 2008-2009 playoffs all over again. Been there, done that. I dont care what anyone says. If the Habs dont get great goaltending they dont go anywhere.

Game 1 - got it

Game 2 - didnt get it

Game 3 - didnt get it

this made me laugh, thanks man

Getting back to this, how much did Metro even play? Considering all the penalties to the centers as well including a 10 minute misconduct to Gomez? Somethings fuckedup. He must be returning way too early. How doesnt he get icetime?

And fuck you Schwa. As if you know anything. Stupid fucking hobbit.

You know, there is still game 4. If the Habs can pull off a win the series is tied and then it becomes a best-of-three series. Not the end of the world yet.

Can I borrow your rose-coloured glasses for tonight?

Did the NHL and Washington Capitals attempt to cover up an investigation

related to steroids?

Upon having more than $200,000 worth of pills, bottles and

syringes-some containing steroids-seized from his Polk County (Fla.)

home in May 2009, former bodybuilder Richard Thomas pointed to the

Washington Capitals as one of the teams he had supplied for. SI staff

writer David Epstein, renowned for his steroids reporting in Confronting

A-Rod (SI, 2/16/09) and What You Don't Know Might Kill You (SI,

5/18/09), explores the possible short shrift given by both the NHL and

the Capitals in response to subsequent investigations: "Last month

detectives from the Polk County Sheriff's Tactical Drug Unit, working

with the U.S. marshal's office, arrested a Thomas client, Douglas Nagel,

a Virginia chiropractor who has treated Capitals players and keeps an

office in a mall adjacent to the team's practice facility. Last

September, Nagel told investigators that he was a client of Thomas's and

that he had mailed money for steroids, including testosterone and

nandrolone."

Both the NHL and the Capitals released statements claiming that they

conducted thorough investigations following Nagel's arrest, claims that

were later called into question by Ian Floyd of the Polk County

Sheriff's Tactical Drug Unit. In an e-mail to his boss, sheriff Grady

Judd, that was shared exclusively with SI, Floyd wrote: "I called and

spoke with [NHL executive vice president of security] Dennis Cunningham

today in reference to the official statements made by the Washington

Capitals and NHL regarding the 'thorough investigation.' Mr. Cunningham

admitted that contrary to the below issued statements, no investigation

was ever conducted into Dr. Nagel and his ties to steroids and Capitals

players by anyone with the NHL."

Epstein adds: "Unlike MLB or the NFL, the NHL does not test during the

off-season, nor once the playoffs have started. (This week the Capitals

are facing the Canadiens in an Eastern Conference quarterfinal series.)

Polk County officials noticed that of the 10 FedEx and U.S. Postal

Service labels for packages mailed in 2008 and '09 between Thomas and

Nagel that law enforcement officials obtained in their investigation,

eight are dated during the period when the Capitals were either in the

playoffs or out of season, and one was dated the day before the end of

the 2007-08 season."
