It was either him or Tantalum
Tant doesn't have long distance, only nation wide.
Whatever. If the canucks didn't happen to have Higgins and Hansen surpassing Raymond on the depth chart the past 12-18 months he'd have a fit on the team. If he gets his game together he might yet have a fit on the team by winning a head to head battle with one of those two. I have nothing against Mason Raymond despite what RD wants to believe. RD seems to think my criticisms of Raymond last season had to do with some sort of hate I had for the guy. But that's only because he doesn't want to admit that behind Malhotra, for the bulk of the year Raymond was the worst full time forward on the team. If Raymond decides to return to his 25 goal, 50 point form by using his speed to drive to the net each and every shift he's welcome on any team. If that does happen I want it to happen on the canucks as a $2 mil 25 goal scoring, PKer is a very nice asset. Unfortunately, that player hasn't been seen for more than a couple weeks the last two seasons.
If Mason Raymond is a canuck next season then it's because he has presumably earned that spot. No problem with that at all. I don't want to see guys getting undeserved icetime this next season. That extends to Malhotra or Weise and even Kesler.
