07:22 AM ET 07.10 | While he may be headed into politics, former NHL enforcer Georges Laraque wasn't all that politic when it came to voicing his opinion on his former club's recent addition. [Laraque] 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." ... "He's a good guy, but in the NHL you have to intimidate," Laraque continued. "He has a good technique, but he's more like a wrestler than a finisher."

Might Georges Laraque want to go a few rounds with Parros to show him how it's done? No? I didn't think so.

LOL - Too bad they didn't sign him sooner. Everybody loves Parros in the springtime.

It matters only if you're a vegan or planning to become one.

As an aside, I want Georges Laraque to disappear from the public conscience more than I ever did Sean Avery.

I don't know, I liked him when he played for the Pens. He was a good guy and was working in the community in the short time he was here. He didn't have the skill set needed to play in the NHL, but he did bring a physical presence.

LOL - With the signing of Danny Briere they got bigger up front. ;-)

I love Big Georges.

And he'd wipe the floor with Parros.

But I'm still glad Montreal at least tried to get bigger and take a bit of the load off Prust.

It's his public persona since he's retired (and the fact he's trying to be a "Green" politician) that bothers the ever-loving hell out of me.

Somebody has to keep you globe killing facists under control.

That was his problem: "He was a good guy." If you're billed as an enforcer, being a good guy will cut your career short.
