Who cares. I was one of the people saying we didn't need one in the enforcer thread, but it's just such an inconsequential trade. We gave up a 7th and a guy who has next to.zero chance of ever being a regular NHLer. Even if Parros never plays a game it just doesn't matter. I hope he doesn't play a lot because he makes the roster actively worse at actually playing hockey, but I'm sure he'll have his use against the Sabres, Bruins, and Leafs.

Go to 0:52. If the boards weren't there, he'd have hit the deck.

Parros has some of the heaviest hands in the league.

More a KD than a KO although in hockey fight terms KO is very often used to mean KD. But I agree with you, if Parros does as good a job against Scott/Thornton/McLaren/Orr next year as he displayed in that video we'll be A-ok.

Who cares if he's deemed the "victor" or "loser" on some fringe fighting site, as long as he does an adequate job when taking on the heavies.

KO stands for Knocked Out, not Knocked Over.

Jab got him off balance.

It's not a KO. And Parros isn't know for is punching power. He can do some damage from time to time but nothing spectaculare.

When playing his 5-6 minutes, is he reliable or he's like Laraque.

I don't know if he's quite Laraque, which is a truly special kind of suck. But Parros can't play NHL level hockey, he'd be under a 10 minute player in the AHL too.

Laraque 2.0 except not as good of a fighter, just fights more.

I understand that he has a reputation for fitting in well, and understanding
his role on a team. This is the number one consideration to me. If a enforcer
doesn't have that, he more of a liability than an asset.
As a fighter all he has to do is compete with the heavy- weights. And
it would be nice if he took Lucic off for 5 min or more, every time we play
the Bruins. Beating other heavy-weights matters to fighting fans, but I
don't think it has anything more than entertainment value.

People like to complain regardless of the move/non-move by this organization. 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. I would have personally preferred a guy who can skate more minutes per game, but Parros is a low risk at adding a bit of toughness in a line-up that desperately needed some. I bet Prust is happy about it.

no kidding. the guy was left ALONE last year. moen sat in his passenger seat throughout the whole season. HM to white who at least drew some attention on himself and blew a fuse against the panthers/sabres ... I can live with his suspensions/brainfarts, we need a guy who's going to take the 3 games suspension because it stays on the other teams' mind. sad but its what it is... intimidation is an integral part of this game. every team need a crazy guy or two.

really happy about the trade. no more orr running around unchallenged.

Maybe but Laraque didn't want to fight anymore when we signed him so he was really useless. Parros at least is still willing to do his job, and I am glad he will be around for the games vs the leafs, bruins, even OTT

Speaking of Moen, here's hoping that Parros, a former teammate and Cup winner in Anaheim together, can light a fire under his butt (if he's not traded)!

Just maybe...

Another advantage of Parros is that the extra minutes he won't play can be shared with the other 2 4th liners which gives them more time on the ice to impress. Rumor was that Moen didn't like being on the 4th line but with an enforcer on the team lines 3 and 4 (excluding the enforcer) pick-up very similar minutes.

This is all assuming Therrien continues the "Time-Share" method of generating TOI for the forwards.

I really don't see where Moen fits in. He's just such a dime a dozen player. If only he would fight or could play center....

I highly doubt that anybody can be as slow as BGL was. Parros probably still pretty slow though.

Laraque is now criticizing the trade, saying no one is scared of Parros.

I'm sure they're more afraid of Parros than BGL, who isn't even playing in the league. Sour grapes for a guy who wanted to have that spot. You should have had your new found change of heart after the Habs signed you to a multi year, multi million dollar contract, you has been.

As for Parros, he's become a necessary evil in the eastern conference. With Ottawa, Toronto, Boston etc all beefing up, it's been apparent for several years now that we needed someone to stand up to the Mclaren, Orr's etc.

Seeing how much better the habs played after we got Staubitz a couple of years ago, I'm surprised it took this long to get a fighter.

Now that we have Parros, Prust and a lesser extent, White, Moen and eventually Tinordi, I think we'll be a lot tougher to play against and to push around. Not a big fan of the "fighter" per se, but like a said, they're a necessary evil as long as teams keep them on their roster.

I'm pretty sure the coach and GM have already lit a fire under him. I doubt he enjoyed getting benched late in the year.

Good bottom 6 players are not "dime a dozen", that's why guys like Nystrom Hendrickson and Prust are getting big bucks. Moen needs to get back to playing with more energy and dropping the gloves every 7-10 games. He can definitely fight and his track record shows it.

Larque is suffering from spotlight withdrawal, he can't stand not being in front of the camera so he had to say something dumb. Before him it was Guy Lafleur making yearly dumb comments.

Laraque is like the stereotype of the guy who looks back on his maybe almost great life, is filled with regrets, and cannot let go.

In this case the shoe fits, he really could have been somebody.

translation of some quotes:

-I know him and he's a good guy, he will defend his teammates. But Boston won't be afraid, toronto and Ottawa neither...

-When Montreal signed Parros, I'm sure the Bruins were relieved. Same for Ottawa.

-He's a good guy, but in the NHL, you have to intimidate. He has a good technique, more like a wrestler than a finisher.

-Prust was amazing last year, better than Parros will.

-Our division is ''crazy''. Florida wouldnt let Parros go if he was doing the job.

-Knowing Montreal's market, after 2 or 3 beatings, people will begin to wonder why we got this guy...

-Some will say I'm jealous, frustrated but I'm not. I know the guy, I know them all. Those who don't believe me will see for themselves.
