Is Laraque Considering Retirement if Traded?

From David Singer at HockeyFights.com:

Yesterday there was a lot of talk about Georges Laraque expecting to be traded from the Canadiens.  Laraque was asked if he was frustrated about not playing the last couple of games for the Canadiens.  He said he was and there were reports that he said he wouldn’t have signed with Montreal last summer if he knew he wasn’t going to be a regular in the lineup.

He confirmed with us that he did not ask for a trade, and added that he won’t.

I asked Laraque hypothetically where he’d want to go if he was traded.  His reply was “nowhere, I would retire.”

Knowing Big George’s love for the game, I have my doubts about that, but I do think it shows his frustration, not just with his lack of playing, but with the media attention what he says is a misinterpretation of what he said.
