Laraque gone?

A very reliable source is telling me that Georges Laraque is headed to the Ottawa Senators as early as Saturday. Another source is saying that it is done that he’s headed to the Sens, they just are discussing who/what is coming back the other way.

I personally want Chris Neil coming back the other way. The guy isn’t as tough as Georges, but he drops them more, is younger, and cheaper. I’ve also heard Antoine Vermette, and Petr Shastlivy. I wouldn’t MIND Vermette, but then flip him and someone else (Horc and Lynch) to the Canes for Jeff O’Neill who also is on the block as reported by TSN’s Bob Mackenzie Wednesday night. The Oilers don’t NEED Jeff, but a change of scenery, especially going to an offensive minded team would really help him out. O’Neill can play centre, and maybe start thinking about reducing #77’s minutes and playing him with Izzy and Smyth.

The O’Neill stuff is speculation, as is what may be coming back for Georges, but the fact that Georges is VERY CLOSE to being a Senator appears to be fact. I pray I’m not wrong!!!

    Sir **NEW Admin. Lint**,

    P.S. I hope on your next article, you’ll remember not to post a rumor unless it has a creditable source other then TC_4’s mysterious one….

    Good luck!

    Read the note I added at the bottom L_E.

    It wasn’t a Belak for Modano & Guerin rumor anyway.

    Nice inside joke.

    Here is the thing… when you work in the sports radio industry, you are not allowed to say where you hear all the sources from.

    This is for 2 reasons:

    Just incase it doesn’t happen, you dont want to make a source look like a idiot.

    Sometimes your told you can mention the happenings but your not allowed to mention the sources.

    Antoine Vermette… for Georges Laraque… wow… there not even in the same ballpark in terms of skill and potential… not the same league… God damn there not even the same sport as far as potential and skill goes… Shit if Vermette left Ottawa for Laraque I would burn my Jersey… I would be so upset… that would be such a lopsided trade it would be disgusting… I can see schastlivy and Neil… or both in a package…. but vermette has been and will be one of our if not our top left wingers for at least another decade… so dream on Oiler fans… dream on…

    That was a name kicking around. I’m not saying that he was THE ONE, but it was just a name being kicked around. I would take Neil and a 2nd or 3rd(more likely) round pick. Laraque is more of a heavyweight, and has proven himself as more of a scorer in the past. I agree though, Vermette would be too much for Georges.

    I’ve heard that Laraque is headed to Montreal for Perreault. This according to one of the Hab’s top scouts who i met at Chez Parée a couple of nights ago. She said that Perreault had been caught in a loving embrace with Theordore’s girlfriend and that the Habs were forced to make a move. Laraque has been very vocal regarding wanting to play in his hometown. It looks like he’s headed home…finally!! Now he just has to relearn how to FIGHT!!!

  8. joethorntonfan says:

    Hello where have you been?

    Laraque said he would retire if he got traded to the canadiens

    he said there would be too much pressure

  9. spazmainia13 says:

    I thought he said he would retire if he was traded period!

    That was either last year or 2 years ago, can’t remember

  10. Lynchmob450 says:

    Hello to you! I’ve been in Montreal.

    Laraque is concerned about the pressure placed on French players playing in Montreal, but we’re talking about a GOON. What kind of pressure did Big Georges think he’d find in Montreal?? No one would expect him to do anything but create room for the small forwards presently found on the Habs’ roster.

    Georges will be headed to the Habs next week (he was benched once again in Nashville). He realizes that he needs to get out of Edmonton and has also realized that going back home will be best for him.

    Getting Yanik Perreault for Laraque will be a move that will allow the Oilers to possibly make a bigger deal.

    Just remember this….the scout i met at Chez Parée is connected. And she is totally sure that this deal will happen. She mentioned that Laraque is mature enough to not get sucked into the nightlife pressures found in Montreal’s hotspots (ie. Chez Parée). He’s more likely to be found in Wanda’s, according to her. But this being said, that’s not totally bad (but not as good as Chez Parée!!).

  11. TC_4 says:

    Thanks boys for setting him straight. I love how people just ASSUME that guys want to go to there hometown, so they make up something like “he doesn’t like Edmonton, and desperatly wants to be a Hab”. Georges will cry his eyes out the day he is dealt. Georges hasn’t been playing good because he is obsessed with the city!

  12. Lynchmob450 says:

    FUCK YOU TC_4!!!! Don’t put words in my mouth (you racist bastard!!!!). I never said Laraque didn’t want to play in Edmonton (he loves the Mall!!!). You’re an master asshole…please stop posting idiot comments. Fucker!

  13. TC_4 says:

    Easy physcho. I didn’t mean that was what you said word for word, but you know you made it up. And as far as “racist bastard”……what???

  14. TC_4 says:

    You do know that Georges isn’t the one making the deal don’t you pyshco?

  15. big_booty says:


    Huh? What?

    Oh. I thought something interesting had happened.

    Never mind.

  16. TC_4 says:


    Huh? What?

    Oh. big_booty, you are one.

    Somebody needs to censor these idiots or HR is going to lose even more viewers. What a bunch of children.

    Remember Donald Brashear?

  19. B-man says:

    man, the sens have won it BIG TIME!! Laraque is a big time player that has the chance to be a huge superstar in this league. He is the “next big thing.”

  20. TheCoach says:

    If Laraque comes to Ottawa, it probably won’t be for anyone on the active roster, except for maybe Schastlivy. Muckler has said numerous times that he hopes to add something without giving up anyone on the active roster. I hope they don’t trade Chris Neil. His play has been quite good of late. But I would love to see Laraque in Ottawa. Edmonton would probably get a pick and a prospect in return.

  21. TC_4 says:

    I agree. Personally, I would prefer a 2nd and 4th rounder, instead of a 2nd and Schastlivy(or something like that). The problem everyone in the city is having with Georges is that he’s taking Jason Chimera’s ice time. In other words, our forwards are set.

  22. TC_4 says:

    Hey, buddy I’m joking around with him. You would know how to do that if you had friends to joke around with.

  23. TC_4 says:

    Please tell me that’s a joke.

  24. Leaf_Expert says:

    Why are you still here.

    Your just stinking up the place…..

  25. Leaf_Expert says:

    back off of Tc..

    Hes not doing anything wrong except defending his article to a _ _ _…. (just use the word TC used).

    Nice one TC!…

  26. kovalev says:

    Laraque could be used in Montreal as well, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him there
