I guess that's better than the Pens' last enforcer named Eric.


Bogunecki?


Cairns?


Bingo. It has to be the record for least amount of playing time in a season for someone who dressed for a game.


Cairns was the best enforcer ever. He broke Zdeno Chara's hand with his face. How awesome is that?

He can't skate and he's not a very good fighter. I'm guessing he won't be playing a whole lot.


Wrong x2. He's a better skater (not player) the Laraque and is a good fighter. When you fight his card with his open style you arent going to be 15-3 everyear.

bill from turtle creek wrote:The Godard-Laraque tradeoff is reasonably even. The hole that needs filled is the light-heavyweight division; there's nobody to replace Malone's willingness to mix it up, and that worries me a little because I sense that Malkin will be physically targeted this year more than ever.

As those of you with good memories will recall, I have already stated for the record from an impeccable source that Malkin did indeed have 2 fractured ribs from the Philly series, hence his disappearance after that. However, I think that other teams in the league may or may not accept that, and they will think that Malkin can be made to disappear with physical play. He is going to need some back-up, for sure.


Good post, Bill. I totally agree with you about the need for a good, tough, light-heavyweight. The Pens don't have one now, and that does worry me a lot. Except for Godard, the Pens don't have one player on their new roster who can fight.

He skates like he's in mud. I despise Calgary so I watch them constantly so I can see them lose. He takes stupid penalties and could only play a few minutes a game for the FLAMES, who were not very good. If he and BGL were to race and do an agility test on ice, BGL would win every time. But BGL was way overpaid for his role and I think Shero did the right thing by letting him go.

In terms of fighting, he's certainly a willing combatent. I think he gets a lot of credit for basically KO'ing Boogard. I realize he can't go 15-3 every year, but I don't think it's unrealistic to want your fighter to win more than half his fights. Godard wasn't close to doing that. I can see the Pens adding someone else around the deadline to protect the young stars.

We don't need him to do anything other than go ballistic every once in a while. The problem with Laraque is that he'd only fight the true heavyweights, and then only if they were agreeable. He never fought anybody who didn't give him permission to pound them. If Goddard can just be an occasional psycho, he will fit the bill. We don't need him to actually play hockey.

Sharks are having some issues getting Ryane Clowe to sign on the dotted line. I'd take him in a heartbeat. He's good enough to play on Geno's line. He'd be liking having Malone again...big (6'2, 225lbs), decent hands (20 goals-20 assist guy), will drop the gloves 5-8x a year.

Yeah, I wouldn't mind grabbing Clowe, but I doubt we could offer up a package that's reasonable for both sides...

Yeah...that's not happening bud, sorry...

Plus, that move would put the Sharks over the Upper Limit by about $2 million I think...it also sends a bad message to future free agents that "you might be traded just weeks after signing a multi-year contract" - not good for our reputation...

Remember the infamous Peter Worrell? He made BGL look like he could skate like Crosby.
