I dont get all the hate on this signing.

The NE division (of past) is the toughest division in the NHL. Bar none. All of the habs rivals have gotten stronger/tougher. Parros is an effective player at what he does. Prust can continue being a pest without needing to jump weight classes.


Love the signing. Just hope he doesnt turn out like laraque

It's nice the Habs decided to muscle up a bit, although it probably won't stop teams like the Leafs and Bruins from humiliating them and intimidating them at will. Parros is big and used to be a pretty good heavyweight but I don't see him being especially motivated to spill blood for the whiny little divers and shift disturbers that Montreal employs.

Your bias is showing. Other teams who whine and dive even more don't have their tough guys going on strike. Look at Boston.

This is great for the Habs. Parros is one of the classiest guys around and is great with fans. As a Ducks fan, I wish Georgey well! You got a good one, Habs.

The Habs get bigger, but Parros isn't much of an enforcer anymore. Why did they make this move? Prust is a better fighter than Parros is now.

A small step, but a necessary one for Montreal. Quite possibly the softest team in the league.

Once Toronto re signed Orr and MacLaren, Montreal had no choice but to do this.

They got embarrassed last year.

Montreal just needs each of their players to grow 5inches next season and they'll be good to go

I'm really excited about this signing for MTL, hopefully he adds some much needed toughness to their lineup and this rivalry continues to have some awesome games! Go Leafs Go

No matter which way you twist this, the Habs are tougher with him in the line-up than they were at the end of last season. They gave nothing of value in the trade and Parros is cheap. Low risk at adding a bit of toughness in a line-up that desperately needed some. I bet Prust is happy about it.

Habs don't do anything and the trolls of other teams chirp.
habs do something and the trolls of other teams chirp.
notice a trend?
bottom line? habs still need size in their top 6.
but a team that has Prust, Parros, Moen, White and Tinordi
in it is not soft.

It's about damn time you guys acquired someone like Parros to fight!

Should make it for a more entertaining year, especially vs teams like Ottawa and Toronto!

MTL:

Prust
Parros
Moen ( though he doesn't seem to fight anymore)

TOR:

McLaren
Orr
Clarkson
Fraser

OTT:

Kassian
Neil
Smith
Cowan

You guys must not have watched much of Parros last yr, huh? He only had like 9 fights this past season and he barely won half of them. And most of his wins probably werent even against heavyweights. Think about this people, why would FL trade Parros when they have/had basically nobody that was willing to fight except Parros last yr?

There's so few guys who are even willing to go with him that it makes him useless taking a 4th line shift. You can look at his stats on hockeyfights and judge for yourself: http://www.hockeyfights.com/players/...htcard/reg2013
Teams need to realize that having heavyweights like Parros just doesnt make sense anymore in the NHL. Middleweights are the way to go as they can usually take a regular shift and can prevent guys from taking runs at teammates.

Parros actually has some skills, he scored 14 goals in the AHL once. Some team just needs to put more faith in him like Randy Carlyle did.

The Habs don't get intimidated at all by either team. In fact, they are much more successful against each team when they use their skill and speed, considering both teams, especially Toronto, are quite vulnerable on the backend, dealing with speedy forwards, due to their sloth-like defensemen. This trade doesn't really do much in my opinion, but the guy has a great 'stache and seems to be pretty entertaining, so it could be worthwhile.
