A few news items

  • Former Habs enforcer Georges Laraque, currently promoting his new book, had some pointed words regarding Carbo on TSN 990 Radio in Montreal this afternoon.  Of this, I have to say:  of course Guy had his faults as coach, and he would be the first to admit that.  But I believe that he truly did his best, bringing his strong passion for hockey to coaching in Montreal.  It should also be noted that since his firing, he has not had a negative word for the organization or any of his former players.
  • Also this evening, on RDS Hockey 360, Carbo stated that he would come back behind the Habs' bench if asked.  This is really nothing new; he said the same on the Quebec talk show Tout le monde en parle in 2009 shortly after his firing.  One move made by the Canadiens organization today:  assistant coach Perry Pearn was let go.
  • And finally, there's less than a week to get your bids in for the Carbonneau game-worn jersey.  The current high bid is $862.  It's been fun for me, as a Carbo fan and someone who's interested in game-worn hockey memorabilia, to see this thing climb.
