No he doesn't.
He needs to win faceoffs, don't make turnovers, be smart defensively, and try to get offensive zone faceoffs. THAT'S what he needs to do to keep his roster spot, not fight Avery or Neil.

If Avery or Neil wanna talk crap, then Laraque will go piss off Alfie or Spezza or Heatly.
Lapierre doesn't need to fight, and quite frankly, I don't want him too. Did you see his fight vs Talbot??..The guy would get destroyed by Neil. There's absolutely no point in fighting when you know you'll lose. That would actually be giving momentum to the other team for free there, dumb move.
