Lapierre would be neat. He's always given a lot for this club when it's been asked of him, and we need someone to run psychological warfare and take the heat off Gally and Subban.

Thing is, with Lapierre, you need an enforcer, cause he can't defend himself. And a real enforcer, not a Laraque, and I don't consider Prust one, he's more valuable than that. McGrattan would be a must, or someone of that ilk...

McGrattan may, or may not, make Lapierre more valuable. But Lapierre would
certainly make McGrattan more valuable.

I actually liked Lapierre with us. Haven't been watching him too much since he got moved so no idea what kind of player he is now.

It is Moen because he has a contract.

Question could be: Do we want Lapierre?

Lapierre does hit a lot and he can get under the skin of many players.
He was 26th, 9th, 17th and 28th in hits during last four seasons.
But he does not fight.

Could certainly take 4th line duties. 6'2", 207 lbs.
Certainly an option: fast, 200+ hits, 20 points for 1M, rarely injured, plays SH, good option in SO.

But it means we would have to endure all those winners about him not fighting.

I still can't believe Gauthier could only get a 5th for him. Actually I can believe it.

Why is it time to move on from effective players?

Because he was awful with the habs. The day he got traded was one of only a few times I was happy to see a guy leave the habs. It was like the Anti Koivu for me.

At least Lapierre is un gars de chez nous and is a 6'2 right handed centre. My vote goes to the handsome jerk in red.
Lapierre won't fight and he is one of the main reasons everybody hates the Canucks. We don't need that type of player in Mtl, we need more players like Langdon! Bickell or bust.

You'll love Moen again when/if he's the 4th or 5th toughest guy on the team. He can't be the #2 guy. He's still a good player and the kind of player I want on my bottom lines, though.

Moen. How quick do we forget how good Moen was the year before this season. Sure, he had a bad season, but can't he rebound? Throwing him to the wolves and forgetting everything he has done for the team prior to this year is quite harsh. He's always been a team guy, a leader and a good hockey player. Let's see if he rebounds next season.

As for Lapierre, I want no part of him. The day he showed how fat his head was when he asked to play in the top 6 or be traded was the day I stopped caring about him as a player. Good riddance.

I think you bring up a good point here. Bringing in Lapierre will let Gallagher and Subban play the game instead of feeling the need to try and throw players off their game by yapping. A right handed, physical, local centerman who's good on faceoffs would be an excellent addition. Who cares if other teams don't like him, that's kind of the point of having him.

How quickly people forget. Last time he was here Lapierre was worse than Moen could ever dream of being on his worst day. He's the living proof that the hit statistic doesn't matter.

Lapierre is so overrated, the dude is nothing special and would keep Moen over him though I think there are much better options then either of them.

Easily Moen. He seems like a pretty classy guy and a clean hard-nosed player. He is just coming off a brutal year, so I get that Habdom is down on him, but he's a better player than Lapierre. Let's see if Moen rebounds next year. We need the player that he can be/once was in our bottom-6. If it turns out he's lost the drive permanently, though, then when this poll comes around again next year, I'll answer "neither".

It was Michael Cammalleri killing penalties INSTEAD of Lapierre and Pyatt that pissed off both of the latter two.

The last two seasons away from Montreal, Pyatt and Lapierre tied in points in 2011-12 and in 2013, Pyatt outpointed Laps 16-10. The truth is BOTH were good enough to play a 3rd line role here, and Dominic Moore should have been retained. That line was money in the 2010 playoffs.

Lapierre is more versatile than Moen. Ideally I'd want them both motivated and on the same line, but I don't think Moen has much left to do in Montreal with Prust in the lineup.

I don't trust any Habs fan that would bring back that embarrassing puke Lappierre. Can't believe anybody would want him back.

Because Lapierre doesn't play for the Habs, has given no sign that he has any interest in playing for the Habs, and wanted out to begin with. Just because he's Quebecois and once played for the Habs doesn't mean if you snap your fingers he will return. He's not in debt to this organization or this city, and so the only way he will become a Hab again is by outbidding other teams for his services. Which means less money to throw at face punchers.
