There are a lot of guys I'd put ahead of Laraque (in no particular order): Bob Probert, Behn Wilson, Dave Brown, Donald Brashear, Jim McKenzie, Sandy McCarthy, Chris Simon just to name a few.
good list. lots of people forget how much of a monster McCarthy was in jrs and early in his NHL career. Georges had the potential to be an all time great but not the mindset.
