Georges Laraque Wants Back In
“At my age I wouldn’t expect to play every game, and if I went from nine minutes a game to four or five, that’s fine,” he said. “I could be a veteran role player. I can’t see how a team could turn me down with those terms if they want toughness"
Georges Laraque just wants to lace 'em up one more time. The thirty-five year old's two herniated discs have "vanished" according to his work out regiments which include acupuncture and yoga. Laraque played in 695 games in the NHL, racking up 1,126 penalty minutes. That's almost a minor penalty per game average. Not too shabby.
It seems like he'd be a good fit for the Canucks, but he's not a huge pussy, so his style may clash with the rest of the team.
