from the Arizona Republic:
Coach Wayne Gretzky scratched enforcer Georges Laraque from Thursday’s game and afterward hinted that Laraque may be dealt before the NHL trade deadline on Tuesday.
“We haven’t really got to a point where anything is imminent, but obviously we’ll explore everything,” Gretzky said. “He’s a good young man, it’s just sometimes things don’t work out and right now maybe (a trade) is the best situation for both sides.”
The Pittsburgh Penguins need a tough guy to protect young playmakers Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. Don’t be surprised if a deal between Phoenix and the Penguins comes down soon.
