To dress Laraque or to not dress Laraque for the Boston series?

That is the question.

No doubt this is almost specifically why he was brought in. Bob McKenzie believes we have to out skill and out speed the Bruins to win this series.

I on the other hand, believe if we are going to win this series it will be in 6 or 7 games. And if we expect to last that long, we can't be getting bullied every night like we were on Thursday...

With Metropolis and Higgins on the "4th" line, I like the idea of dressing Laraque. Why? Because this would give us a great spot on a line to double shift Kovalev every other shift here, as Higgins and Metro have as much skill as any two "4th" liners in the league, and we can use this to our advantage.

Dress Laraque as a body guard, but be double shifting Kovy in his spot every other shift. That's what I'd do, and I hope what the plan is...
