Freshly minted Canadien Georges Laraque spoke to a dozen or so Montreal hockey media this evening on a teleconference arranged by the hockey club, saying it will be his job to let the team’s skill players do their job and not be run out of the arena.
Here, in its entirety, is the audio of the 23-minute bilingual session.
A couple of highlights in English:
• About 3:45 in, Laraque speaks at length about his 2003 comments about not wanting to play for the Canadiens;
• At about 19 minutes, he speaks candidly about having been able to take advantage of a Canadiens team last season that didn’t have a heavyweight on its roster.
(Apologies for the sound quality; teleconferences are what they are…)
