Canadiens Say Goodbye To Georges Laraque; Laraque Not Amused

The Montreal Canadiens have officially said goodbye to Georges Laraque as they announce that he will not be in the lineup for the rest of the season. Laraque signed a three year deal last season and will be bought out of that deal at the end of the season. Laraque, whose parents are originally from Haiti, was not amused and told TSN how he felt:

Laraque added that Martin never shared any concerns directly with him and is furious with the Canadiens' approach based on the emotional issues he's dealing with following the devastating earthquake in Haiti and the impact this disaster has had on both him and his family.

"To do this in the midst of all I'm dealing with in Haiti, the timing is awful," Laraque said angrily.

While Laraque's head may not be in the right place right now, unfortunately for him the Canadiens cannot wait forever. They are in the midst of battling for a playoff spot as they are 11th in the Eastern Conference, three points out of eighth.
