I think the beauty of bringing in a guy like Laraque is that it keeps the 2 or 3 Bruin goons honest. If they're not mucking it up with our players then we can focus on our game and not play to the Bruins strenghths.
By Laraque challenging Thornton, Lucic and Chara he has painted a big bulls eye on his chest and in doing so will take the punishment that would otherwise be dealt to our talented forwards. Having Laraque in the line up will make a HUGE difference imo as long as the talented forwards focus on what they need to do and not get dragged into all the scirmishes and becoming unfocuse. That's basically what the Bruins do to other teams, allow their top forwards to play while the bigger guys take the other side off their game by gooning them.
Gainey can see this and that's why he got Laraque last year, he recognised this shortcoming and filled it.
Go Habs Go!
