I think it was on his contract,no waivers and no AHL

Too bad for Georges, great human being. Bad hockey player.

EPIC FIGHTER (just not with the habs)

Jacques Martin is clearly putting his foot down.

Apparently he has a no-movement clause, which means no waivers, no minors, no trades. (Although I think he gave a list of a few teams he would accept being traded to when he first signed)

I'll never understand this organization.

All we hear about for years is how soft we are, how we get pushed around too much, so we go out and get the biggest baddest knuckle chucker in the league, and are baffled when *gasp* he is not terribly fast and doesn't produce.

I'll never fathom why other teams can play a Boogaard or a Shelley or a Thornton or a Stortini on a regular shift to protect the talent, but we can't figure out how to do it. If you answer that the other teams are stacked with more talent, then that's a whole other issue we need to address isn't it? NO longer the fault of an enforcer in the lineup...

I for one will miss you Georges, a guy with some fire in his belly and <gasp again> a bit of passion and pride for being a Hab.

So now let's bring up a crappy middleweight in Neilson and watch him perform the same way in the same role, but get pummelled when he faces the Orrs or the Godards or McGrattans of this league, and add no intimidation presence whatsoever.

The dysfunction and absolute lack of any kind of vision on this team is boundless.

I was so ahppy when we first got him because I thought he would do the things that made hm such a tough opponent and put fear into the other team. But it became more and more apparent that he wouldn't bring that edge to the Habs. Never have I seen a pro athlete complain so much about his job and the sheer drudgery of HAVING to play his role. Georges, you're a fighter and the $4.5 M you stole from the Habs was to be their enforcer, not energy drink spokesman, not vegan extrordinaire, not whiney little *****..

His stat line tells it all: 21 hits in 28 games and 4 fighting majors.

Finally

Great, more room for Desharnais and Subban

Brian Burke will pick Laraque up and he will beat the shmilbilck out of us every time we play the Laffs

Yes his cap hit will be (1,500,000 * 2/3) /2 = 500,000$ for 2010-11 and 2011-12.

It will remain 1,500,000 for this year.

So we save a million on the cap next year, and lose 500k on the cap in 2011-2012. Thats ok i guess. A million more to give to pleky!

As usual, this is going to get ugly.

i just spoke with Georges Laraque who has been released by the Habs. "Classless," is how he describes the move. Up soon on www.tsn.ca
Laraque must post on the HFboards main board, "classless".
