One-time Edmonton Oiler Valentin Zykov will miss the next 20 games. Violated the banned substances policy and got caught. Like everyone else who's ever been caught, he's shocked and doesn't know how it could possibly have happened, and he's sure he didn't do anything, but he accepts the consequences nonetheless.

These guys all read from the same script when this happens, which makes it really hard to believe someone like Nate Schmidt as he continues to maintain his innocence and claim that it was food additives that triggered a false positive.

Did Zykov ever have dinner at Schmidt’s house?



You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you can get a lottery pick.

A couple of weird things here:

The Vegas Golden Knights Statement says:

Quote:

"We were notified by the NHL and NHLPA that Valentin has violated the terms of the NHL/NHLPA Performance Enhancing Substances Program. We monitor the nutrition, supplement intake, and overall diet of our athletes on a continual basis throughout our entire season. Valentin knowingly used a banned substance without the consent, recommendation or knowledge of our team. We support the NHL/NHLPA Performance Enhancing Substances Program and respect the decision here."


Their team twitter account has just posted these tweets:

Quote:

Jonathan Marchessault: Everyone in this locker room is proud to be a Golden Knight. One bad decision from one player doesn’t change that.


Quote:

Max Pacioretty: Our staff has everything set in place to make sure we’re healthy and in a good spot to go out and perform. We have full confidence in our staff here.


Kind of strange, but maybe they're more concerned having now had two violations in 14 months...

Given how lenient the NHL's program is, you basically have to really go out of your way to test positive. So the fact they've had 2 positives doesn't look great.

17/18: 234 GF / 263 GA (-29)
18/19: 232 GF / 274 GA (-42)
19/20 pace: 254 GF / 243 GA (+11) after 30 games

There's just something in the water down there in Vegas!

Yeah its called Vitamin S


..for these guys 20 games is an acceptable risk, compared to the millions they can get with a contract derived from a roid assisted performance.

What the league should do is make the teams responsible, drug test every player, every 2 weeks, if the team has a PED positive, they get fined, have their cap limit reduced, or lose a 2nd/3rd round draft pick.

Zytsev's response .. "I'm shocked .. shocked!.. " is classic..

Oh man and he's a Russian in sin city...stereotype or stereotruth? In my opinion it's probably coincidence, though I hate convenient coincidences. Not good after the Kuzy snow day video.

I lost a lot of respect for Schmidt over that last year. I wished he was an Oiler before that.
