Desharnais 5"7 177lbs
Gionta 5"7 175lbs

Its not THAT bad... I agree that having both Gionta and Desharnais is an issue. If you'd replace both for 6"1+ forward, they would be in the average.

And for the def;

Tinordi 6"6 212lbs
Emelin 6"2 220lbs
Beaulieu 6"2 182lbs
Gorges 6"1 210lbs
Drewiske 6"1 220lbs
Subban 6"0 216lbs
Markov 6"0 203lbs
Diaz 5"11 198lbs
Bouillon 5"8 198lbs
There is no way Danny Briere is 5'10. I've seen him in person and he's more like 5'8 on a good day.

Pretty sure BGL could take a lot of people, but why you would want to sign a player based on whether he could take Lucic? Why do we wanna take Lucic? Is there a team called Lucic? Or maybe the Stanley Cup is just over there across the room and Lucic is the dragon who protects it? And Laraques was horrible. He hasn't played hockey in a few years either.

Don't teams usually post players' heights on skates and not actual height?

Don't get this trade. Parros just takes up a roster spot that can be used by someone who can actually play hockey.

It's more of an insurance policy so that Prust doesn't have to fight two weightclasses up any more.

He's the 14th forward. If anything it's better to waste a contract spot on him than Lefebvre. Pretty sure Lefebvre is related to someone from the Gauthier era. He's awful at the AHL level and it was never thought that he had NHL potential. Gives us room to give another kid a shot on an ELC.

Must be that Laraque is a francophone
It's generally accepted on the Canadiens' forum that Habaneros is just... out there.

Like it has been said many times, he'll play only against a few team and basically to prevent Prust from fighting heavyweights like he did last year. Basically, he'll be useful against the Leafs, Boston and maybe Ottawa.

Otherwise I'm pretty sure he won't play. There are already 12 NHL forwards in front of him on the roster anyway.

Oups, should have read a bit further. It was already answered, sorry!

He's way better than those guys at hockey. Doesn't fight but still uses his size to make hockey plays.

Just make sure your 6'5 ***** doesn't find a way to lose against a 5'11 Prust this year...
Yuck? Did you mean nyuck?

Bourque jumped on his back and got what he deserved. Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

I'd like to see Prust fight Orr. I think it would be a great scrap.

We're not talking about skill we're talking about height and it's correlation to physicality...

That's the reason Parros was traded for. Prust wont have to fight a useless ******* like Orr and lose in the tradeoff.

No, but he'll fight a 'useless *******' in McLaren.

The thing is, you know Prust still will (and probably lose). That guy just doesn't care who is in front of him.
