• Bourne on hockey and steroids: “This isn’t a referendum on Karlsson specifically. A Twitter search for “Karlsson steroids” or “Karlsson PEDs” or “Karlsson HGH” will show you that plenty of people have made up their minds about his situation. It sucks for him that healing up so quickly has turned him into the catalyst for this conversation (when in fact he should probably be praised for his diligence in rehab). But it does give us the opportunity to make the point that there’s no reason for hockey to become baseball a decade back, turning a blind eye to something occasionally visible because it makes our best players better, recover faster, and entertain us more” [Backhand Shelf]
