I believe the most likely possibility is there was concern about Steigerwald that he got wind of somehow (rumors fly in every professional circle, right - and there's usually some grain of truth to it), and Madden exaggerated it by attributing false but vague claims, to get attention. And of course if he doesn't name names there's nothing legal the ROOT / the Pens can do about it. He can just say "that's what I heard" or "that was my understanding, but I wasn't sure so I didn't name any particular person."

Of all the media idiots in the Pens' market, as much as I dislike Steigerwald and Rossi sometimes, Madden sits in his own realm of idiocy, due mostly to his unwarranted arrogance (thinks he knows way more than he does) and total lack of ethics with this kind of stuff. Major blow-hard. I'd also say of all the media guys likely to read/post/get ideas from this board under a random name, he is the most likely, Rossi second, Steigerduntz third.
