The fact that all that "boo hoo Larry works for NJ" stuff made me sick to my stomach too. (He was definitely my favorite player growing up.) No one seems to care that Laperriere worked for Boston and NJ, and if we are going to start to care whom ex-players have worked for....Maurice Richard worked for the Unholy.... the Nordiques....
That does not make any of these guys less of a Hab to me. But it does to some.
I don't care a whole lot, if anyone's up in arms because Robinson chose to stay in the employ of people that he's formed a relationship with, well, consider the source.
Lapierriere left the team when Corey decided to remake the team in his own image didn't he ? He worked thru Burns to Demers I believe. I think that people don't speak about him a whole lot because there isn't much of a connection to him from his playing days.
His son played some jr A, if I remember correctly, was his name Daniel ?
