NHL Drug Policy is Weak

from Al Stachan of the Toronto Sun,
It sounded awfully impressive when the National Hockey League announced it. It's the new and improved (fanfare) Performance Enhancing Substances Program. Its revelation was met with a sage nodding of heads and grave intonations. There were nods of assent, and assurances that the NHL is taking the lead in cracking down on substance abuse. The even deeper thinkers decreed this was a step to keep the U.S. Congress happy, as if the House of Representatives cares in the least about the NHL. In fact, this program is likely to be nothing more than a fertile battlefield for the ongoing acrimony between the NHL and the NHL Players' Association. If it does anything more than line the pockets of a few dozen lawyers and the occasional stray doctor, it will be downright astonishing. What wasn't widely noted by those making the announcement was the fact the program is limited to performance-enhancing substances.
