    Yeah, a lot of speculating about that on twitter and that's definitely not it. You can test positive for coke and the NHL/team can't really do anything. (PED's are really the only thing the league can actually pop you for)

    They can suggest you enter the player assistance program, but it's completely voluntary unless you test for levels that are so high you're in immediate danger, so the idea that Perry could be basically a complete junkie at 38 and still be this good wouldn't make a lot of sense.

    and I doubt they have grounds to terminate his contract for cause for drug issues.

    Hawks being so vague makes me think it’s something that they can’t legally speak about right now

    yea something is missing between what Kaplan said and what Davidson said. I was going to post about Kaplan's report last night but I couldn't really make sense of what it could be if it also wasn't criminal.

    You can make an unwanted sexual pass at someone without it being a criminal offense. That’s still my guess.

    According to sources, an alcohol-fueled incident involving Perry was alleged to have occurred during an event that included corporate partners and team employees in attendance. It remains unclear what allegedly took place, who witnessed it, and who reported it to the team.

    Interesting point about the underperforming guys on bigger contracts

    As one source asked: “Perry was in some ways disposable because he is 38 and not the face of the franchise. But what if he was 25 and had just signed a $70 million extension last summer? Can that just be washed away now with no questions asked? What about guys who are signed to long-term deals that are overpaid and underperforming? Can teams conveniently terminate those because a guy does something vaguely immoral on the road one weekend?”

    Guess the question is what is he owed still, as a player and against the cap? I genuinely don’t know, I am asking.

    Second, does the PA have any balls at all in hockey? Because I think that’s the pretty easy answer. Again, if it’s rhetorical, I just don’t know, not busting balls.

    It was actually Bonino I believe who brought this idea to the Rangers, but the difference is absolutely wild. Trocheck was 16 of 17 at the face off dot the other night.

    I imagine this catches on quickly across the league.

    Players have been doing this for a while, surprised it took so long for a team to adopt it completely.

    Perusing some edge data now that it's updated for this season. Some interesting things:

    -Bedard is below league average in top speed. However, he's in the 91st percentile for bursts over 20 MPH, and the 88th percentile for distance covered. Kind of cool to see the "Being fast vs. playing fast" trope put into numbers.

    -Crosby is still one of the faster/harder working skaters in the league at 36. That's insane.

    It's annoying that there's still no sorting tool. How hard could that be to add?

    Yeah. This is one where all three guys shoulder blame. Ref deserves the most scrutiny for not blowing the play dead, but Hughes also has to protect himself. You can’t assume the whistle is getting blown. Hathaway has a history so I just assume he knows what he was doing.
