Although if Burrows, one of the league's most hated pests prior to this season, can turn a new leaf I'd imagine Lapierre could too.
The one guy who seemed to really like the move was McGuire; he covered the Habs/Caps playoff series last year, and said Lapierre was lights-out in a shut-down capacity. McGuire did say Lapierre was nearing the 'end of the road' as far as NHL chances if he didn't start buying into a system though.
