Laraque handed 5 games/Pascal Leclaire out for atleast a month

So as it turns out Laraque will have to serve a 5-game suspension for his leg whip on Wings forward Niklas Kronwall. Aditionally, Laraque will lose $38,000 in salary, he will return December 4 vs. Boston. Yesterday we posted the video and asked what you thought, apparently the same as the NHL.

TORONTO (AP) -The NHL suspended Montreal Canadiens enforcer Georges Laraque five games for a hit on Detroit defenseman Niklas Kronwall.

Laraque received the suspension for an incident on Nov. 21. against the Red Wings when he collided with Kronwall resulting in a leg-on-leg, open-ice hit.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaand, we’re back….

Alright, I know… it has been awhile. A long while. I apologize, but there has been a lot going on outside the Loge. So, here is my promise to you Logers, I will have at least one post a day, every day, during the week. It might not be specifically Bruins related, but we’ll have some NHL stuff up here for you.

First things first, I’ve been receiving emails about some cool stuff going on in the show.

1. The Vancouver Canucks new locker room. Pretty sweet set up if you ask me:

My New Favorite Player, and Post-Game Beverage

Laraque got in trouble for this commercial he put out, I’m over it, I think he might be too…. Also, well played by Georges, he didn’t know what the ad’s script was and he agreed to do it because the money went to charity. People, it’s for charity, what’s the huge deal?

From the Ventura County Star

NHL tough guy Georges Laraque of the Montreal Canadiens apologized after appearing in an advertisement that violates NHL rules regarding alcohol.

The ad for an alcoholic beverage called Octane. 7.0 shows Laraque playing street hockey with several scantily clad women, and it has drawn the ire of the NHL and some women’s groups.

The league’s collective bargaining agreement states no player can sponsor or endorse an alcoholic beverage.

Laraque said he had no idea what the ad’s script was when he arrived for the television shoot and that he only agreed to do it because it offered a lucrative payday for charity.
