Yes, that's what people are saying. They wanted Laraque to 'Todd Bertuzzi' Lucic.

Perfectly summed up.

Baseless hyperboles aside, Laraque could have done what he was paid to do, and send Lucic a message, but not a verbal one. No one is describing Chara as a psychopath after he defended Seguin vs Emelin, are they? He was paid (way too much money) to protect our guys, not to politely ask opponents that took cheap shots if they would like to fight.

Laraque was useless when he was here. He intimidated no one due to his 'code'.
