Georges Laraque is eyeing a comeback in the NHL.
“You never know, it could even be Montreal,” said the former Hab. “Gainey’s gone, Gauthier’s gone.” “It’s a matter of going to the right team. I have no idea where it could be.”
In January 2010, then-GM Bob Gainey informed Laraque that his services were no longer needed. Now, two years later, with his bad back healthy again, according to Laraque, he says he’s ready to find out if there is a market for his services.
“I have a chance to change the way things ended,” said Laraque. “I have something to prove.”
Laraque says it was “awesome” playing for Michel Therrien as a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
“He will make sure that the little small Canadiens’ team that was taken advantage of by clubs like the Bruins and the Flyers…that’s not going to happen with him as the coach.”
Laraque says he’s instructing his agent to reach out to NHL clubs to find out who might be interested in his services.
