Yep, i saw plenty of games. Especially when Lucic went off the ice when Laraque went on. But is that worth 1mil of wages?
Not to me.
It is to me.
Laraque is feared. He's not just a fighter, he's an intimidator.
Do you really think anyone will be able to **** with those guy up front (Cams, Gomez, & Giant)?
No way. Martins, as some have said is very intelligent with his usage of Enforcers. He's a tough hard nosed COACH. Like the former habs coach who won the Adams, and others before him (Burns comes to mind)
He's a thinking, breathing hockey machine who knows how to utilize talents.
Ottawa was on fire when he was coach. They arent the same since.
Laraque will have a role on this team this year, & IMHO he'll show guys like you he's worth his 1.5.
Just to answer your question as to why moving Lucic off the ice when Laraque is around is useful, is because in a first round, you can get in their coaches head, and Martins will have his lines out first.
We are going to be abrasive.
NOT FUN to play against.
I think these guys are more fearless than the guys we lost.
& Toronto just inherited a Lucic problem, that has not been said at all.
No Laraque to save you now little Mikey.
& I wouldnt be surprised if Mikey inherits a BGL problem as well... BGL is about the code and Honor and all... well, IMHO he broke the biggest one of them all.
