Reaction to the Steroids Report in Washington

From Tarik El-Bashir at Capitals Insider:

I just got off the phone with Brooks Laich, who is the NHL Players’ Association representative for the Caps. He said he was made aware of the steroids report early this morning and is in the process of calling all of his teammates. Here’s most of what Laich had to say:

Q: Do you have any idea what the suspect in the steroids case is talking about?
A: I have no idea. As far we know it’s just speculation. The guy didn’t say if it was 10 years ago that he sold to the Capitals. Whether it was five ago that he sold. We have no idea. I’ve already been in touch with our players, and there’s nothing on our side to report.

Q: What was your reaction to the sheriff coming out and repeating what a suspect said without offering any additional evidence?
A: I watched the video of it. I was kind of surprised he would say it. But he was also very careful in saying it because of the wake it would cause. As far we’re concerned as players, it’s just accusations of a desperate man trying to get some publicity, I think. But we’ll see how it plays out over the next couple of days.

Statements released by the Capitals and the NHL are below:
