The NHL believes it has a solid, evolving drug-testing policy. World Anti-Doping Agency president Dick Pound thinks it's a sham. And the testing debate rages on.
The NHL is trying to fool the public with a flawed anti-doping program, the chairman of the World Anti-Doping agency said Tuesday.
NHL commissioner Gary Bettman wants Dick Pound to back up his claim that as many as one-third of hockey players use performance-enhancing drugs.
Dick Pound's recent comments say more about the man and his organization than they do about the NHL and its players.
The president of the World Anti-Doping Agency said he suspects as many as a third of the NHL's 700 players may take some form of performance-enhancing substances, a claim an NHL official said has no basis in fact.
