How about checking? When the medical community - my wife's a neurologist, she claims this is coming - decides that any trauma to the upper body can produce concussion and etc., etc., you know what we'll have... figure skating.

All the peace-niks want to ban fighting, but have no problem with a rock 'em, sock 'em check. At the end of the day, fighting... checking... CAN have the same results, and mostly come from the same place i.e. aggression.

This. 100%. This.

That being said, we get to experience the double hype this time around since Samsonov and Laraque weren't signed at the same time.

He's not there to play hockey.
He's there to backup Prust.....Much much needed saw against Toronto all year and vs Ottawa in the playoffs!

I don't think they have to worry so much about us adding Parros, but the overall theme of the thread is about the tough players other teams in the division have.

I just watched all 9 fights of Parros in 2013 and I am quite happy about our new bodyguard. Everyone was saying that he can't fight anymore and after watching these fights, I'm wondering what the hell they were talking about. Welcome to Montreal Parros!!

The next thing you know, we'll be comparing Parros to Laraque in the Briere thread. How silly would that be?

Cause you know, absolutely no parallels can be drawn between these respective signings.

Look beyond the players, and just appreciate that there are similarities in hype and expectations. Beyond that, each player is absolutely different, I'll grant you that.

We don't know what we are talking about over there but I figure it is the same every where.

He is not a very good player but at least it wasn't McIntyre or McGratton.

Yes, we won't finish 1st because of it but to each their own. Each trade has a purpose and this trade serves one.
Agreed as usual WS. It's not just Prust. If anyone does something stupid to Chuckie, Gally, Price, Max...Prust and now Parros are there. That will be his instruction.

This protects our young core until our window opens 2014. Good move.

It has nothing to do with peace-niks. It has to with money, pure and simple. For years the great NHL thinkers have acted in the belief that fighting was essential to the success of selling the game to the great unwashed masses. So long as the financial benefits flowing from the inclusion of fighting in the game exceeded any financial costs or risks arising from such inclusion , the NHL was prepared to condone or even promote this primitive aspect of the game. Enter the enormous financial risks posed by the Boogaard claim, and the long accepted risk/benefit calculation is now in question. If the Boogaard claim is successful, the door will be opened to a flood of other eager claimants. Insurers for the league will be compelled to re-assess their exposure and will insist that the league drastically adjust its approach to the issue of fighting. The league will be caught on the horns of a dilemma: take material steps to reduce or even eliminate fighting and risk losing a portion of its sterling fan base or face crippling insurance costs and potential ruinous jury awards. The NHL will act as they always do: follow the money. The game over the next ten years will change dramatically. Unnecessary violence will be eliminated both at the NHL level and in all feeder systems who, similar to the NHL, will be fearful of judicial accountability. But such change is not unprecedented. One only has to look at the most successful of all professional leagues, the NFL. In the name of player safety the league has imposed a host of new rules that many purists say has changed the game. Nevertheless, the NFL remains a financial juggernaut. A similar transformation will almost certainly occur in the NHL. Money speaks loudly. For those who need fighting to satiate their primitive need for violence, they will have to look elsewhere.

Not keen on the Parros signing but what the hell didn't cost us anything (really) and will be entertaining at times

Yes, Price was our "biggest" player

Hopefully... Hopefully Travis Moen steps it up.
Tinordi is still the tallest at like 6'7".

Wow that sounds just like the morons who tell people to leave the USA when they complain about something the government did or a social issue here. Do you watch hockey for hockey or the fighting?

Most of the time, we have a 3rd/4th liner playing 5-7 minutes a game.

Next year, in some games, it will be Parros.

He didn't cost anything, has 1 year on a 950K contract.

He sucks at hockey, but I will be happy to see him in uniform for 40-45 games, especially against the Bruins and Leafs.

That will be all.
