I meant in a meaningful game; Pacioretty still is yet to play an NHL game.

This shows we need a tough guy in our lineup.

In the first 10min TB hit everything that moved.

Kostopoulos did the right thing but he got rap3d by a very not-afraid Artyukhin. I doubt this russian guy would have played the same with a Laraque in the lineup.

Yeah..he's more the size of Laraque.. i dont know what kind of rule or code Laraque is following but Kosto is fighting bigger guys than him all the time.

Props to Kosto for dropping them against a monster. He is always willing to fight and defend teammates, you have to love him for it. He really needs to be re-signed.

Thats what you get for picking #13 as your number.

Call me a poopypants, but I don't think we suffer much without him. I never cared for him anyways, he's soft and fragile. He's clearly not cut out for the East.

Well, IMO, he's out for 3-4 weeks like Komi.

On a more positive note, Sergei Kostitsyn will happily take Tanguay's ice time

Sergei's confidence looks to be coming back and just in time for the Leafs game next week. I hope he destroys Grabovski.

Not the way he's played.

Hopefully he gets hit and gets a separated head, give the doctor an excuse to fix it.

Dislocation? Or fracture? I know a separation is usually a dislocation, but sometimes there can be a fracture in the bones. I hope the scans show no fracture or its gonna take more than 3-4 weeks before he comes back.

Really does suck. We can only hope the team continues on this high note and scoring comes from other sources like Lapierre and his hat trick the other night.

Pacioretty and Chipchura will likely be called up.

Poor Tanguay, first Carbs decided to cut back his time to like 5 minutes a game, making it harder for him to get his soft points, and now this.

I'm worried about what will happen to the Habs while their clutch performing, net driving, tough as nails, don't back down, best offensive player is gone.

Do you think that TB wouldn't have used the bodycheck as a tactic if Georges was in the lineup ? The guy may have faced a different opponent if George was there, he might not have been as eager to fight, but do you have any data suggesting that teams don't hit when an enforcer is present ?

I wouldn't count on it. Laraque would first have to ask kindly if the other guy wants is willing to fight him with honor in a gentlemen's duel. If his opponent says yes, Georges would slowly approach his opponent and whisper kind words to his ear like: "are you ready to go?". After the fight, "big" Georges would have to fly back to montreal and miss the next game due to his bad groin and write a blog about it on sportsnet.ca.

And forget jumping a guy when the score his 0-0, George wouldn't want to put his team in trouble. He needs a comfortable lead before he fights, like the Habs leading 4-0.



In other words... I prefer a guy like Kostopoulos in our lineup than a so-called fighter like Laraque.

Kostopoulos >>>>>> Laraque

I don't know if it will last long-term, but right now we are doing pretty good with our projected first line (at the beginning of the year tanguay-koivu-Higgins) out of the line-up, that's what you call depth!

Laraque wouldn't have prevented this injury...

Tanguay didn't protect himself.. the second I saw Artyukhin going toward Tanguay I knew he was in trouble.

Just stupid play by Tanguay, he should have been more carefull, it's the ****ing NHL and he's a veteran.

...and forget about Laraque beating up Artyukhin, first off all, it was a very very very clean hit (I don't why you're calling for a man hunt for this ) and second the guy wears a visor, I'd like to see the last time Laraque fought a guy with a visor... if Laraque didn't fought Lucic, forget about that guy...

Basically, Laraque would have been useless last night and probably would have take the place of one of our best players last night ('cause the best ones were the 3rd and 4th liners).

Basically Laraque has been useless all season and probably for the rest of it to !

Totally agree BGL is a waste of 1.5 million on the wage cap. In this day of the NHL we don't need these big goons anymore the game is all finese and too fast for goons.

There are general assumptions made around the game that tend to be false, at least in my view. Guessing as to what would have happened if Big George was around hardly involves JG Drouin's word, which I would assume to be good though I don't know the man.

Moreso it was his opinion I was disagreeing , which I thought was what we used to do here without silly define your terms pissing matches.
