I agree it should be a penalty.
I strongly disagree about a Laracque ass-kicking. If this were to happen the optics would be horrible. You don't send a heavyweight after a small player without incurring the wrath of the league and losing a lot of hard earned respect.
The best way to deal with it is to play well, play hard and win.
All of these comments about Grabovski are laughable. It is all supposition and speculation fueled by an overzealous media.
If a player is happy about sitting no team should want that player. If a player is confident that they can play the game at a certain level that's usually a good thing. Leaving the team like he did last year wasn't a smart move nor was it a well thought out, mature decision.
Montreal made a smart decision to trade him but I doubt it was anything personal or about his skill. It was a matter of not having room to utilize what he could offer and maximizing him as an asset.
I'm not impressed with his butt end on Price but otherwise he's doing his job the same as so many players have before including many Habs.
What I find interesting is how personally some Hab fans have taken it.
