Where's LARAQUE?

Is he hurt? I can't believe he is a healthy scratch for the last 3 games. Thanks

That's ok, we'll just have to wait till Laraque embarrasses him in Boston.

A guy like Brashear doesn't care if the other guy wants to fight him or not... That's what makes him a feared quality enforcer. FFS, he put a beating on last years 3rd overall pick... all 195 pounds of him.

Laraque sticks to an archaic code that may very well end up getting him booed of the ice by the end of the season. Lord knows, he already deserves it.

Little by little this year i've noticed him refusing to fight guys after guys with a big Ribeiro-like smile. If that continue the word is gonna be passed around the league amongst the guys and he's gonna lose their respect.

Yes.

Lucic would'nt be able to act the way he act with guys like Probert, Dave Brown, Tie Domi, Tony Twist Joey Kocur still in the league.They would'nt care taking the game misconduct and even the 1 game suspension to send the message. You an be sure Lucic would probably calm down quite a bit.

I think you guys are far too touchy about this to be honest. I could see if Lucic were a dirty hitter (a la Kaleta or Neil), but he isn't. He physically dominates games very cleanly, and is very deserving of his first line spot.

Every time I watch a game against Buffalo I get nervous when skill players are on the ice at the same time as Kaleta. He hits from the side/behind late, and really is going to injure someone at some point. In that respect I like a guy like Lucic because his hits are always anticipated, it's just that he's so god damn big that they're still devistating.

He'll fight Laraque, just give it time.

I'm already so sick of Laraque and we're only 4 months into his 36 month contract. He just needs to stop thinking of himself as a hockey player, and start acting like the sideshow freak that he is. But unfortunately he thinks that he's actually more valuable on the ice than in the penalty box, and management doesn't have the backbone to set him straight.

You will never see Laraque do that... and that's why he's completely useless except for some team like Florida or Nashville who want to fill some seats.

Lucic would'nt act the way he act 15-20 years ago simple is that.
Lucic, 6'4 220 tough guy going at smaller, non-figther guy (except Ivanans) and winning most of is fight and acting like an idiot after, but still refusing to go with the big boys.

Lucic might go with Laraque, in Boston, after Laraque went with Thornton, Chara and with Laraque being at the end of a shift.

Actually, of your 3 examples the only one I would want to see Georges doing is a fight from 13 years ago against another legitimate tough guy, something which Brashear doesn't do nearly as much any more.

I don't think we need Laraque jumping an 18 year old kid to tune him up for throwing a body check or sucker punching someone with his glove still on.

Obviously he will never be aggressive enough for you, but, I'll wait until he's healthy before considering him entirely useless.

Ya, that's it, peace over anything else. Read what I said & come back with something a little more insightful.

Listen, Laraque isn't doing his job because he abides by an archaic code. Gainey and Carbo don't have the nerve to tell him that until his "code" starts signing his pay-cheques, that he's to shut his mouth and do what he's told.

So this is all a moot point. We're stuck with this sideshow freak who thinks of himself as an actual hockey player. Gainey and Carbo won't do anything about it.

The thing is, Gainey and Carbo have limited mental capacity so I'm understanding when it comes to their poor memory. But what's your excuse? Do you not remember Thornton punching Hamrlik in the face last season? Do you not remember Lucic taking Komisarek out right before the playoffs. To be honest, Komi hasn't been the same ever since.

At least Brashear has the speed to play on the second line.

You're joking right? Brashear is done. There are tougher guys out there than Brashear that people can propose as a replacement for Laraques.

We should use Laraque to enforce some of our players if they don't do a good job.
