Sunday's Dump & Chase: Does Hockey Have a PED Problem?

Not in the sense that baseball and football do, certainly. Because there's less scrutiny on hockey, but also because there have been very few positive tests. Larry Brooks has a column out today suggesting the NHL is totally clean (he says there have been zero positive tests, but I found evidence of a couple: here and here), but does that seem likely, given what's happening in the other major sports? Not to me, and there's at least some anecdotal evidence to support that position. So what do you think? Is this a thing?
