Local sports personality John Steigerwald is all over Twitter on Tuesday for his recent comments speculating about the possibility that Alex Ovechkin's apparent decline is due to steroid use.

There are whispers and maybe even some out-loud conversations around the hockey world about Ovechkin's problem being a lack of artificial help.

Let's just say it straight out. There are whispers and maybe even some out-loud conversations around the Pittsburgh area about Steigerwald's problem being that he's a moron and a troll. The last time you probably heard about John Steigerwald was eight months ago, when he was arguing that a guy who got beaten so badly he ended up in a coma had it coming ... because he was wearing a baseball jersey, and grown men should not be wearing baseball jerseys. This is pretty much how Steigerwald's mind works, to the extent that it works at all. Caps fans, Pittsburghers don't like this guy either.
