For those of you who hold out hope that Laraque will come back to Edmonton and protect our fledgling Superstars and our fragile millionaire defensive corps keep dreamin suckers. He's a Hab now.

Update from Brownlee

Just got off the phone with Georges. His deal with Montreal is for three years and is worth $4.5 million, so he actually gets a raise. By the way, Laraque strongly considered the Oilers — and I confirmed this morning they had the door open for him — but he opted for the Habs.

Note and a question from Wanye 

It's being reported that George's deal includes a “partial no trade clause.”

What the heck does that mean?

You can only be traded if the team agrees that they want to move you? Sounds to me like taking a “partial birth control pill.” Either it is, or it isn’t. There is no partial.

Does anyone remember when players signed contracts that made sense?

I can see why he would sign with the Habs. Fair enough

I wonder how the Montreal media will treat Big Georges.

He's always welcome back to the Oilers in my opinion.

The partial no-trade clause probably means he has a list of teams he would go to, similar to Visnovsky before the Kings traded him here right before it kicked in.
