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?
