just compare Shane Doan to Mayson Raymond??!!
2 to 3 more goals per season at 2.5 to 3 times the price.
Now OBVIOUSLY there’s more to it than goals but ummmmm...
Last 2 seasons counting playoffs:
Shane Doan: 50 GOALS in 171 games (74 assists).
Mason Raymond: 27 GOALS in 154 games (41 assists).
Now consider the fact your Vancouver Canucks have been having problems scoring goals
... when the going gets tough (i.e. the PLAYOFFS)
Wot part of the following statement by dbr did you not
“Averaged over an eighty-two game season Doan's playoff career totals put him at 22G 19A 41P while Raymond's totals would put him at 11G 14A 25P.”
And note Doan’s goals-per-playoff-gm have been increasing, Raymond’s decreasing, last 2 years:
Shane Doan: 8 GOALS in 20 playoff games.
Mason Raymond: 2 GOALS in 29 playoff games.
Y’know, back in the day if someone dared compare a player like Doan to a player like Raymond said poster was banned on the spot. I’m not kidding: BANNED! But now.... NOW we’ve got guys who spew things like “2 to 3 more goals per season at 2.5 to 3 times the price”... and the offending post is not even deleted! Okay, okay I get that in this day & age we can no longer have minimum IQ requirements and ban folks who do not measure up, but goodness gracious if I wanted to read GARBAGE I’d be at Calpuke right now!
Please forgive me if I sound a tad harsh Mondi for my motives are pure. Nothing personal good buddy, I’m just doing what I can to help keep Corner standards high. See this is in essence what you are saying: “Most NHL Gms consider Doan to be worth 2 to 3 times what Raymond is worth but that is only because they are idiots who never stopped to (mis)count the GOALS!”

Nice backtracking attempt but Raymond should never be mentioned in the same breath as Doan.
Mondi wrote:But, the reality of the situation is that people are supporting the acquisition of a guy over 35, who has scored a mere 10 more goals than Raymond over the past 3 seasons while playing more games. And they are cool with spending 5 or 6 million on him.
lol and yup he goes RIGHT BACK to comparing the two!
