His fax broke. He had to do it the old way. Laraque

It may be suspension worthy but I seriously think the league should just **** off due that they let pass way worse hits than that since the beginning of the year.

Any suspension the NHL gives to Laraque is a bonus for the Habs. Any player from Hamilton's roster is of more use that he is right now. The guy is slow and won't defend a team mate unless his code says it's ok. Waive him, please!

Suspension worthy. Stuck out the leg and extended it catching Kronwall's knee. A few games at least.

In reality you only say so due to wanting him out of the line-up regardless.

Either it was dirty and warrants a suspension, or it wasn't - Laraque being the culprit doesn't make it either better or worse.
Please... What's your purpose here exactly, stir ***** over a hypothetical question? Come back when Mtl's best player actually does the same thing as Laraque did, until then, shut up.

So Shero was lying about 600 games wihout suspension?
You have more information about Laraque being a cheap player?
You know about other suspensions?

He will get a suspension because his name is Laraque and not Richards.
But we know Richards and Kronwall (among others) intentionally tried to injured other players.

Edit: I found another one.
there is no specific rules for kneeing
this automatic rule is for boarding from behind

Rule 50 - Kneeing
50.1 Kneeing - Kneeing is the act of a player leading with his knee and in
some cases extending his leg outwards to make contact with his
opponent.
50.2 Minor Penalty - The Referee, at his discretion, may assess a minor
penalty, based on the severity of the infraction, to a player guilty of
kneeing an opponent.
50.3 Major Penalty - The Referee, at his discretion, may assess a major
penalty, based on the severity of the infraction, to a player guilty of
kneeing an opponent (see 50.5).
50.4 Match Penalty – The Referee, at his discretion, may assess a match
penalty if, in his judgment, the player attempted to or deliberately
injured his opponent by kneeing.
50.5 Game Misconduct Penalty - When a player has been assessed a
major penalty for kneeing he shall also be assessed a Game
Misconduct.
50.6 Fines and Suspensions - There are no specified fines or
suspensions for kneeing, however, supplementary discipline can be
applied by the Commissioner at his discretion (refer to Rule 29).

Laraque haters sound like a bunch of babies right about now. Like Markov, Hamrlik and Gomez haven't given out cheap shots before?

If you punch a guy in the head, till he's ********, that is acceptable. Hurt a player's knee, and now you haters grow a bunch of morals? lol

a slight difference is the other guys you mentioned actually bring something positive to the team. what exactly does laraque bring?

and lol at you thinking people here want laraque suspended just for the knee. i think it has more to do with the fact that he wont be in the lineup anymore....thats the biggest reason people wanting him suspended.

After seeing those videos posted above on this page, Kronwall looks like John Cena when he's flying at players for the big hit. Looks more like a diving shoulder tackle.

ahhhh vegans...and they're supposed to be respecting all living things.

Definite suspension. The guy hits someone in the face up-ice, then when the play moves back down commits a flagrant foul. It obviously wasn't intentional, more reactionary, but who cares -- it was a clear breach of the rules. He was trying to cover up for his own suckiness.

Anyone catch his attempt to make up for it by trying to draw a penalty pretending he got a stick in the face (later in the game).

So p'd at BGL. I cannot think of an actual use for him.

good point, but that's the League's fault. They were wrong on that call since Ladd clearly left his feet and they are supposed to punish based on the victims injury status as a criteria.

What's the deal with Maxwell. Should he be playing there (until Gomez comes back)?

Its obviously that the people who are calling for Laraque to be suspended big time and for him to have a "life ban" etc. are completely useless themselves. Laraque is not a skilled hockey player, get over it. He is the best fighter in the league and that's the reason why we signed him, as a team that has the reputation to be soft. I can't wait till we are getting pushed around in a game and we don't have BGL to help us out... If any of you wimpy guys were GMs of the habs we'd be the laughing stock of the league because we'd be getting our butts handed to us physically night after night.

I'm not saying he COULDN'T be useful, but what has he done...at all? He went on and on in the offseason about how he was going to be back in full form and have a different attitude and help the team in ways he couldn't last season. IMO he was actually somewhat useful towards the end of the season. This season, he's been injured or when he's there...nothing. What has he had, like 2 fights (1st was against Orr I remember)? How many hits does he have compared to what you would expect from an intimidator? He is actually useless. We have been pushed around in games (see Calgary), but Laraque being there would have done nothing but maybe cause a fight with Mcgrattan. We still missed all our chances to score so no benefit from him. I wish Stewart didn't suck ass this season. He was more of an in your face guy and could win a fight. Bgl fighting is just a sideshow, unfortunately. Again, I don't think he meant to do it, but look at how it cost us.

Nevertheless, I am divorcing my view on the hit from my evaluation of his play. It's undeniably a knee on knee and no matter if it was on a dirty player or not, it should be a suspension. How long? I'm not sure what the league is smoking these days, so I would hope at least 2 weeks. Not that he will be used in the lineup by then anyways. We have to concentrate more on scoring. White, Pyatt and co. are taking care of the hitting.

There's no question he should be suspended....but I don't think he's a bad player, injuries aside. He was clearly one of our better prepared forwards last playoff. He was very effective. Was a real handful down low.

This was a real one-off for GL....maybe there is some history between him and Kronwall.

Laraque won't be suspended. I am pretty sure Kronwall signed a contract authorizing Laraque to hit him. Laraque never attacks without a signed contract.

Kronwall (knee) is out at least four weeks with a sprained MCL, the Detroit Free Press reports.

"The good news is there's no damage to the ACL," general manager Ken Holland said. "But we're looking at a minimum of four weeks and at a range of somewhere between four to eight weeks." Kronwall has 13 points through 21 games this season, so the Wings will have to look to their depth for more contributions at the offensive end from the blue line. Derek Meech will join the third pairing beginning Monday against the Predators.

"Laraque was assessed a two-minute minor for tripping on the play, however the NHL is reviewing the incident today, has asked the Wings for a medical update on Kronwall, and most likely will hand down a suspension to Laraque."

BGL should be suspended. I do not believe he attempted to injure him. He was trying to avoid being beaten on a play, and made a poor decision, one I'm sure he regrets. He'll probably get 2-5 games, the league cannot allow this type of play to go unpunished, players need to be in control in all situations.
