In the past Sather has expressed interest in obtaining Laraque. He is probably the only enforcer in the game that logged more icetime that Orr did last season, cept for maybe Fedoruk. I could see something like this going down. Slats loves his enforcers.
Maybe Sather is trying to work a deal involving with Tampa, say for their 3rd rounder? Then sign BGL.
But...for the record, I would take Colton Orr over Laraque anyday. Not becuase I think he is a better fighter. But, I like having a guy that enforcers on the teams needs, and not by his own terms, ala BGL. Orr at this stage of the game is certainly the more active fighter of the two.
I think if Orr gets moved it's more to clear a roster spot for Dane Byers to be the enforcer.............and if so I am ok with that cause Byers and Moore should be on the team now...........Korpikoski can go down for one more yr and be called up during the yr
