I would love to have Laraque on the Habs !
A tough player like Laraque will DEFINITELY help protect our star players.
Besides being one of the best fighters in the league, his size and strength on the boards is what the Habs need !
He punishes the opposing teams' D with huge bodychecks when they have the puck. He then tires out their D when he has the puck and is cycling down low.
Very hard to strip him of the puck when he is on the boards.
I would even put him on the power play - to screen the goalie.
Impossible to move him out of the way in the new NHL without taking a penalty.
From all I have heard about him he is a fan favourite who listens to the coach and accepts whatever role he is given.
Can any of the nay-sayers list specific instants of prima donna antics ?
As for stupid penalties, GET OVER IT !!!
Enforcers take a lot of penalties : it's part of their role.
Can you name any enforcers that don't take some bad penalties ?
I think Laraque is a Chris Nilan / Tie Domi type of player. He strikes terror into the otehr team but can also play hockey.
SIGN HIM !!!!!!!
