Law enforcement officials visit KCI in steroids probe of Reston chiropractor

A Polk County (Fla.) sheriff's department spokeswoman says two detectives came to Kettler Capitals Iceplex this morning and were accompanied by at least one member of the U.S. Marshal's office.

The visit is in connection with the arrest today of a Reston chiropractor who has ties to the Capitals and the Nationals. The chiropractor, Douglas Owen Nagel, was arrested at his home in Reston and charged with obtaining steroids and other illegal performance-enhancing drugs from an alleged steroids dealer in Lakeland, Fla.

Nagel was listed as a consultant to the Nationals and Capitals at a medical conference in Washington last year, but investigators have found no "conclusive evidence or proof" that Nagel has distributed steroids to any professional athletes, according to a release from the Polk Sheriff's Office in Lakeland.

Here's the full story by Amy Shipley.

No chance any Caps were doing steroids.

Great, a publicity-loving redneck sheriff from the South. I guess we can count on everyone's due process rights being protected.

Speaking of trolls, RichmondPhil, I believe that was our old friend Wendel the Tool who was defending Cindy on the YouTube site, commenting on the video of Cindy's dust-up with the Wings.

I know this isn't completely definitive, but typically you can tell that an athlete has been hitting the steroids by looking at how his body has changed. Take a look at the before and after photos of McGwire, Bonds, Sosa, etc. You don't see any Caps with the big necks, massive upper bodies, etc. Ovi is one of the strongest guys ever in the NHL and he really does not look like he could have taken steroids.

The other reason for hockey players not to take steroids is that it shrivels your gonads. Hockey players are much too into being real men to find that an acceptable result. :^)

Now, I may try to defend Crosby on his hockey play, but how could anyone defend those recent antics? Well, I guess trolls could, haha. But still, (to quote a different blogger) that video reminds me why I am supposed to hate Crosby, Caps fan aside.
We don't see wendel much now, do we? Once the Caps lose in the playoffs, he'll be here though.

Anyways, I originally came here to post about the fact that we play ATL and BOS twice until the season ends. Depending on how their other games go, we could very control the fate of the 8th seed. We definetely have a good amount of influence, depending on the outcome of those 4 games.

I noticed that too with the Caps schedule. That could be very interesting to see how it turns out and how the Caps approach thos games.

I also wouldn't throw out the possibility of either Ottawa, Montreal or Philly dropping into the 8th seed.

In addition, looking at the Rangers schedule they still have a decent shot. They got some relatively easy games with 6 of their next 8 against non-playoff teams. On the other hand the Rangers would have to win some of those games so it is unlikely to happen.

It's amazing how wide open the race is for the bottom playoffs spots in the east. In the west, it's amazing that if Phoenix beats Chi tonight they move into the top spot overall. Anyone who had Phoenix as the top team in the west going into the season is lying.
