It's amazing the amount of sugar these guys that drink powerade consume per game. Ill drink maybe 1 25 ounce bottle which will get you going a little but these guys are refilling their bottles at least 3 or 4 times a game. When you add it all up, thats a lot of sugar.

(just random info, so don't judge me)

Daneyko did LOTS of cocaine. a friend of mine almost got into a fight with Daneyko once. they were both at their dealer's place and the dealer actually broke it up. i love Daneyko, but its a good thing he didn't fight this guy. this guy would have really hurt him.

i indulge every once in a while (weddings!) and out here in LA my dealer is a huge Kings fan with season tickets. he's also good 'friends' with another client, Sean Avery.


^none of the above is meant to malign any player. i think hockey has as much cocaine use as any other sport. you throw a lot of money at young single guys and the cocaine use come along.

Yeah i realized it was a substance abuse list afterwards. Initially I just saw "Here are some official NHL cokeheads:" before the list and saw Daneyko.

the reason why coke is so popular with athletes is that it can be cleansed from the system within a day or two...........no traces left if you work out hard and have an active life style.

it is a never ending battle

Oh Yeah. I'm sure there are tons of using among players that's never discovered and/or never reported. Like someone said earlier, when you have young people with alot of money that like to go to clubs/bars, there's gonna be plenty of snow and booze in that picture. Unlike some other sports though, I noticed that the NHL does a really good job of keeping their coke cases on a hush.

There may be a couple of guys on every team doing coke, but you realize that most teams have testing. Redden and Emery have been rumored to do coke, but highly doubt it's a team epidemic. If it was, you'd expect the Sens to have performed at a much higher level, after all, it's an enhancer.

Here are some official NHL cokeheads:

http://espn.go.com/nhl/s/2001/0228/1116704.html

NHL substance-abuse history
ESPN.com

The NHL's Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health Program was created in 1996. Under the policy, players may voluntarily participate without penalty. Previously, players were suspended automatically for alcohol or drug use. Terms of the suspension were at the commissioner's discretion.

Following is a list of notable players who have either been suspended or have had an encounter with the NHL's policy in its various forms.

Jan. 23, 2000
Kevin Stevens: New York Rangers winger arrested in a suburban St. Louis motel for felony drug possession of crack cocaine and is admitted to the NHL's treatment program. It is the second time he has been a participant. "I was involved before this happened," Stevens told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "I had been sober for 18 months." Stevens missed the remainder of the season and signed as a free agent with the Philadelphia Flyers on July 7.

Feb. 28, 2001
Theo Fleury: New York Rangers winger voluntarily enrolled in the NHL program. According to a Sports Illustrated report, Fleury sought help from the same program after the 1999-2000 season.
This is a perfect example. I remember when Theo Fleury got busted. He was having a great season and then immediately after a game where he was a healthy scratch one night late in the season, BAM! the announcers were like - "We just got word that Theo Fleury will not be with the team for the remainder of the season due to personal reasons." I was like WTF? It was a few days later that the story started to leak a bit and I read that he has checked himself into the NHL's Substance Abuse Program and will not be with the team. Yet still no details about what he did or what it was for.

Then I started to dig a lil further out of curiosity and got the scoop. He was busted with possesion of crack cocaine and a prostitute in some hotel room. The funny thing was that Kevin Stevens was with him that night but got extremely lucky he wasn't in the room when they raided it. And I'm not gonna do the research right now, but I'm almost positive that the Rangers had played the Blues in St. Louis like a day before this happened. So considering that Kevin Stevens had a bust in St. Louis the year before, it was probably his downtown St. Louis coke and poon connections that he turned Theo onto.

Nothing wrong with a little Coke to liven up a party.
