Alas Georges Laraque has ceased to be a Hab. Montreal General Manager Bob Gainey made the announcement that coach Jacques Martin no longer has a role for Big George with Les Bleu, Blanc, et Rouge.
I think the last game where Benoit Pouliot and Josh Gorges had fights showed how ineffective and pointless Big George was to this team.
The Habs are in a very tight spot. I love how the cap has turned the NHL into a Rotisserie Hockey League. Parity is the rule of the day and one 4 game losing streak can ruin an entire season at this point.
Montreal is currently 1 point out of that vital 8th spot. While PANIC may not be the word of the day; surely concern is.
Could Big George’s salary allow for a modestly priced pick up?
Even a Peter Sykora?
Look at what $750K bought us in Marc-Andre Bergeron.
While some may criticize Bob Gainey for not being able to find a victim to take on Laraque, at the very least one question has been answered as this team enters the home stretch of their 2009-2010 season.
What do you think Canada?
