Good on Laraque if that's what he truly wants! We live in a free country and that's his choice. Whether a team will give him that opportunity or not remains to be seen, but I'll never put down a person for setting some goals for themselves and trying to achieve them.

For the Habs? No thank you. But best of luck with his quest!

Habs should hire him as fighting coach.

I still the same problem happening:

Laraque says "Wanna fight?"

Lucic smiles "Nope."

Laraque says "c'mon mon."

Lucic skates away.

Laraque follows him around the ice like a dog in heat after his biotch.

He should go to a division rival and prove to the world he is ineffective.

You really want him to teach "the code" to the rest of this team?

But he had a 50% shot percentage in 2010. We could really use a sniper like that.

Bring back Odjick instead. He's 41 years old and he worked on his pugilistic in good ole' Quebec beer leagues during the last few years.

Laraque making a comeback in the NHL would be great, but in Montreal, I'd rather sign a guy like Parros instead of Laraque.

I can't see why people would whine about the fact that one of the best fighters in the NHL during the last decade could come back next year. It's only good news. The more heavyweights there are, the more old-school hockey is.

I can't believe some of you are serious about wanting him back. Come on, I'd rather have 10 Gomez than that useless plug.

Not him: Brashear.

Odjick is living in BC where he owns a golf course.

Nah, BGL can leave his schtick at home. He wants a real job, he can teach a real skill.

While attempting to make fun of Laraque with that post, you're exposing yourself with it. See, Laraque isn't the one to blame for this, but rather it's the worst rule in hockey, the instigator rule, that's to blame for players cowardly hiding. In the old days, Lucic would have had to answer the bell or turtle, because there would be no fax or invitation as the gloves would be off. They would know when they're lined-up side by side.

He was actually one of the Habs more effective forwards that playoff series and had Chara listening for his footsteps.

Hogwash! Laraques is to blame as he still should have grabbed on to guys to protect his teammates. He was the only tough-guy in hockey who had this bizarre personal code of ethics. Lucic's teammate Shawn Thornton isn't going to worry about the instigator rule or wait for a fax to arrive if someone roughs up one of the Bruins stars.

You know I was kidding right, but hey, Gino was present at Therrien's presser.

Stop crying. I sure hope he wont be with the Habs but I hope he gets back in the NHL. The more enforcers there are in the NHL, the better game we'll have.

“At my age I wouldn’t expect to play every game and if I went from nine minutes a game to four or five, that’s fine. I could be a veteran role player. I can’t see how a team could turn me down with those terms if they want toughness. I want to end on my own terms and I have something to prove. I’m going to be so motivated to play again,” he said
Quote:
What about Montreal? Martin didn’t feel he needed a fighter. Maybe Laraque was too vocal for a role player. Did he burn his bridges there?

“No, everybody’s gone, they cleaned ship,” he said.


Laraque knows Therrien as well as anybody.

“Michel is really intense. Of all the coaches I’ve had, he wants to win the most in that he’ll go overboard. What I mean is sometimes he’s used tactics that weren’t right, dealing with men,” said Laraque. “He gets every inch of effort out of every player he’s had, but being so intense, it’s normal that after a while people don’t accept the message any longer. But he knows what it takes, and he knows how to win.

“Now that he’s come back (to Montreal), he might change some of his methods because he knows some of those methods have burned him in the past. What I know for sure is every team he’s had is one of the best-conditioned teams. You skate and skate and he treats everybody the same, fourth-liner or first-liner,” said Laraque.
