Lucic disagrees with you. I'm sure there are a few other NHL'ers would would as well. Laraque was far more intimidating that Parros will ever be.

One irrelevant man interviewing another. Call me for something more important, like when Hollywood the Crescent Street banana guy interviews the man in the Youppi costume.

He gives unpopular opinions just so people talk about him. He's doing it for his own personal benefit.

Many Montreal fans get a hate on (or love on) for players the way a Rottweiler clamps down and doesn't let go. It's almost a mental health issue.

Not a fan, disagree with what said, but props for going in air and taking questions from fans.

It's clear after playing in the league, things got to his head, and Laraque thinks he is more of a hockey player than enforcer.

Lucic scored the GWG the game that Laraque chased him around foolishly. It did nothing.

I'm not even scared of Georges because all I'd have to do is say "I don't feel like fighting you" and he'd leave me alone.

So should we blame the media cuz they know how to draw moronic babblings outta Georges or blame the one who babbles on moronically??...if you were really his friend, you'd help stop him from sounding like a putz...

Ditto. And I was prone to bash Laraque. In this case, it feels good to be proven wrong.

Yeah - I agree. Tony should spend some time with black-belts. Number one rule is... if you have the potential to be a fatal weapon, you need to take more, not less, responsibility.

Laraque is 100% right. If he were to laced into an unwilling Lucic, and knocked him out or worse, he'd be hung out to dry. Both for his race and his role.

You mean the game that Lucic got "intimidated" into scoring the game winning goal?

Yeah, Laraque sure scared him good.

It's revisionist history to think that Laraque ever negated Lucic.

He was a liability on the ice and asked politely to fight. Not intimidating at all.

What did you want, Laraque to sucker punch him and potentially end his career?

Too bad he was paid millions to help the Habs, not help himself. A little over-dramatic on his part. No one would call him out based on race if he grabbed a hold of Lucic. This isn't Mississippi.

Are you seriously trying to equate "intimidation" re: not taking cheap shots, injuring players, etc with scoring goals? If so, how the hell did you get a gig as a sports writer?

Good thing Parros won't think twice before doing what he's paid to do. That in itself is far more intimidating than the "b-b-ut, my code! my code! I can't fight him!" that Laraque clung to foolishly and sheepishly. Real intimidating. You can run around throwing cheap shots but you'll never have to answer to said enforcer if you choose not to. And he'll respect your decision!

Can we lock this spam thread or merge it with the former Habs thread? Has next to nothing to do with the current Habs.

Like some said before, he his not there to intimidate the other teams, he is take to take the punch (and give some) for them, whether the other team is intimidated by it or not is irrelevant.

So how did Laraque effectively intimidate Lucic? Tell me. He asked him politely to fight, and Lucic refused as everyone else did that didn't want to fight. That's not very intimidating.

If Lucic was so intimidated, he would have been worried about Laraque being on the ice, and he probably wouldn't have scored the winning goal. But Laraque was there, Lucic was free to do as he liked, since he faced no threat from Laraque.

At one point Laraque was a force, but not in Montreal.

Some folks wanted nothing less than a Todd Bertuzzi incident. Of course, when the press/public would start calling Laraque a psychopath, etc., fans would abandon ship and tsk tsk the action. Bunch of hypocrites.

Yes, that's what people are saying. They wanted Laraque to 'Todd Bertuzzi' Lucic.

Perfectly summed up.

Baseless hyperboles aside, Laraque could have done what he was paid to do, and send Lucic a message, but not a verbal one. No one is describing Chara as a psychopath after he defended Seguin vs Emelin, are they? He was paid (way too much money) to protect our guys, not to politely ask opponents that took cheap shots if they would like to fight.

Laraque was useless when he was here. He intimidated no one due to his 'code'.
