    does anyone know their testing policies for PED's? I'm assuming they're great since I can't remember any player from either league getting caught using PED's.....do we really think NBA and NHL players are clean?

    Yes, those guys really care about the children and the record books.

    Here's the NHL's policy, that was incorporated in the last CBA.

    Columbus Dispatch had a very good story last month saying the NHL's drug policy goes dark when the playoffs start, so anyone and everyone could be taking every banned stimulant on the list.

    Sean Hill is the only NHLer I can think of who's been suspended. Jose Theodore was caught taking Propecia for pre-Olympic testing but wasn't suspended because it wasn't an NHL test.

    So that's how Chelios does it.

    what about the NBA? There's an investigative story waiting to be told.....I just find it odd that no one talks about HGH or any other PED in the winter sports.

    They really don't talk about it too much in the NFL either, relatively speaking.

    True.....but players do get suspended, for whatever reason the public doesn't seem to care when an NFL player gets suspended for PED's, it's baseball players that are ruining sports.

    Unless testing is done out of season, its pretty much useless

    Only the idiots get caught when its strictly in-season testing
