Laraque: Habs' Parros Won't Intimidate Division Opponents

Quote:
Former NHL enforcer Georges Laraque may be headed into the political arena after a three-year absence from hockey, but it hasn't stopped him from voicing his opinion on matters around the league - namely that of his former club the Montreal Canadiens.

Laraque - who confirmed Tuesday that he will vie for a seat in the House of Commons for the Green Party - criticized the Habs' acquisition of tough guy George Parros to a Montreal newspaper, saying he wasn't intimidating enough in a competitive division.

"I know him and he's a good guy - he will defend his teammates," Laraque told La Presse. "I'm sure that when the Canadiens signed Parros, the Bruins and Shawn Thornton were relieved. In Ottawa and Toronto, they were relieved."

Dear Georges. Just because you were irrelavant in Montreal because you refused to do your job, does n't mean the New george is going to go down the same path as you. What does Georges Laraques and Montreal politicians have in comon, Like George they never did there jobs, and they were all found out to be frauds in the end...

You can attack the messenger but can you disagree with what he said?

In an earlier post in this thread, before seeing this quote, I said that it was like Laraque used to say, if you have 20 fights in a year it's because people aren't afraid of you. And that is the story on Parros.

You know your team needed Bordeleau and didn't get him. That's the reality.

It isn't always about intimidation, George, it's about sticking up for yourself and your teammates - And Parros is tops in that category.

Laraque is an idiot. Saying Parros is a wrestler and not a finisher..Laraque went for the takedown 10x/10.

BGL calling out others for "not intimidating" and for "wrestling" in a fight?
You really can't make this **** up.

Not sweating this signing, although I think Parros is a decent fighter.

It would obviously be nice to see Parros become a bit meaner out there but either way he is still a massive improvement over what Montreal had last season.

BGL is a bitter attention whore and should really just shut the **** up already.

Well then, nobody is afraid of Orr.

To be honest, I doubt there is a player in the league who scares another heavyweight. They're all about the same.

Why would he even say this? I would just be happy Montreal got some toughness! Sure, Parros isn't the toughest fighter out there, but the guy does his job and it's a huge improvement from what Montreal had.
