Afternoon Line

It’s uncertain how widespread this problem is in the game, but it seems very unlikely that it’s isolated to a couple of players here or there. If (Ian) Laperrière is right and four or five guys per team are regular painkiller users, that’s nearly a fourth of all NHL players, an alarming number. You hope that is an overestimation, but you fear that it’s not. It is a major issue on which the NHL and NHLPA need to get a handle.
