Fishing through U-Tube, even Chara is afraid of Laraque. Some idiot will come up an challenge him and win, but all sane veteran NHlers will stay well away. Once he fishes a collar, there is no certain defense against his left hand. He only has one move and one strategy as a fighter, and it's like Jack Dempsey or Joe Louis: you just don't want to take that punch. Ever.
Now if we can find a niche so he can be on the ice as a legit player in a 4th line unit, we've got it made. Hope BGL's focusing on his hockey skills. There's always room for him in front of the net.
Any time a team can add a line with quality players such as Tanguay, Lang and Laraques without giving up assets the team would be vastly improved. Georges is also a hockey player as well as a goon. He has decent speed and if he hits and goes to the net he will be a huge addition.
Lang has great hands and is very smart. There will be mucho tic tac toe goals scored this year.
yeah, that's why I believe higgins will be a good fit with lang. Higgins likes the quick passes in scoring situations. They can create alot of room for each other with short and quick passes... lang needs someone like that to compensate for his foot speed
