So because he played under Therrien's coaching once upon a time, he could find himself with the Habs again? Not a chance. With guys now willing to drop their gloves in White, Staubitz, Moen, and Blunden, there is no need for a useless player like Laraque.

He'll be lucky to find any work in the NHL, as far as I'm concerned.

Sorry, I wasn't really following the Habs that year. Did he refuse to fight?
Fighters had to follow a certain "code." If you aren't willing to drop the gloves, it was a no-go. So if someone ran over Price, Laraque would swoop in, ask the guy if he would like to dismiss the gloves from his hands, kindly place his stick on the ice and engage in a duel of fisticuffs.
