Penguins Acquire Georges Laraques

Finally, some protection for Sidney Crosby.

Another cranky vet waives a no-trade clause to join Sid and the Pens.

From TSN.ca:
Forward Georges Laraque has waived his no-trade clause with the Phoenix Coyotes for the purpose of being traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins for forward Daniel Carcillo and an eighth-round pick.

Laraque, 30, has cemented his role as an enforcer in his nine-year NHL career with 878 penalty minutes in 546 games.

He is under contract for US $1.1 million this season and $1.3 million next year after signing a two-year contract last summer.
Yikes! $1.3mil next year for a goon?!?!

Well, he better make damn sure Crosby isn't so much as breathed on.
