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.
QFT.

Except, I do remember Rossi coming in here and posted under his own name.
