*Haha* RD called it. Our new Mason Raymond got cut.

Ummm by the time RD "called it" everyone was expecting Hunter Shinkaruk to be cut (due to nagging injuries).
For your information, RD is "right" about everything... and wrong about everything.
This is due to his constant flip-flopping.
For example, here are some of his positive "thoughts" on Hunter Shinkaruk:

Horvat and Shinkaruk are gonna grow together in this organization, Canuck future looking a fair bit more promising now. We should be seeing these two, Horvat and Shinkaruk at the WJC's I imagine. Yes, Hunter is slight at just under 5'11 and 175 lbs, he ain't a Schroeder shrimp, but the kid is highly skilled, has a real nose for the net, super fast and highly competive. Love it.

Great drafting Gillis

Note that 2 weeks ago RD was saying Shinkaruk would make the team.
Everyone knows you are in love with RD.... Todd.
I just wanted to help you see that sometimes love is blind.
