Laraque vs Parros

I was looking through clips of fights and haven't found one of these two heavy weights ever squaring off. Parros is one of the toughest and you know he will be willing to go on Saturday. Is BGL going to be in the lineup? I hope so because that should be an amazing scrap.

I doubt we'll see Parros fight. Anaheim can't risk an injury to their leading goalscorer.

lol...Did you see his goal against the Leafs?

Actually that would be a pretty good fight if BGL and Parros went at it.

Parros is tough

but Laraque is the champ and Boogaard is the #1 contender

Maybe Parros is #3... i cant think of other guys off the top of my head.

I think you guys overrate Parros, as a fighter. He has terrible balance and Laraque would exploit that easily. He's a huge guy and he punches hard but he's no match for Georges. Laraque will rag doll him. Parros has improved each year but he's a lower echelon heavy weight, imo.

You never know, because i remember when Cote gave BGL a rockin not too long ago, yet Parros KOd him. When a fight starts you just never know...

BGL should smoke him. Parros is arguably a top 10 fighter behind Boogard, Brash, Orr, Godard, McGrattan, King, Peters, etc.

Be a good scrap though, because Parros doesn't mind opening up.

Georges should win easily, due to Parros sloppy balance. Parros could catch him and stun him with a punch, that's true. And Parros is a huge man. But if I were a betting man, and I am, I'd take that bet 9 out of 10 times.

If it happens I think Laraque pulls him around knocks him off balance and wins easy.

Why would they fight if there is no reason to it? Just for the hell of it?

I know George is there for fighting but, those pointless goon fights are really useless in my mind...

Well the Ducks tend to play a physical game, thus there will be a good chance that something wrong happens leading to a fight. I think that's why many figure there could be a fight between BGL and Parros.

Yeah I get that. It's probably wishful thinking on my part predicting that nothing "wrong" will happen. I surely hope that no one gets hurt (on both teams).

Yeah, I'm hoping it won't be anything more wrong than the habs scoring 5 goals in the first period and Parros wants to change the beat of the game so he targets Laraque.

Me too! The double-take is hilarious! He's like "oh yeah, this hand is free now"!

+1

Laraque was on ice twice and had to fight twice. I don't like it. I bet he doesn't like it either.

There are cases where him fighting and intimidating is useful and needed for the team, like with the Yotes last game. He used his specific "skills" to help us win the game.

On the other hand, there are those pointless goon fights (like with Thornton) that serve noone and are mainly for the wrestling fans. I don't want to see those.

Because they are paying him $1.5 million to do so.

He wouldn't have fought if he didn't ''like it''. Its his own choice and he understands what he has to do.

You are probably right but, let's just say the Thornton fight was pretty useless. He did what he had to do against Phoenix and that's more than fine by me.

I guess I'm just voicing my own opinion but, I don't really enjoy two heavy weights going at it when nothing is on the line...

They probably won't go. No need to. Parros isn't a guy that runs around like an idiot.

I actually hope they don't. I don't want Laraque fighting every game.

Why not? Its not like they're forced to. Plus if its a home game for us it energizes the crowd and can give the team momentum.
