We are now seeing that maybe Raymond is not the type of player who is capable of maintaining a high level of play throughout an 82 game schedule.

This should help Gillis negotiate a reasonable cap hit for Raymond moving forward.
Raymond's ''slump'' is a result of being shuffled down the depth chart with the return of Demitra. He hasnt played poorly. It is good that it will lower his cap hit in negotiations, but much like Brule in Edmonton...Raymon'ds gotta be pissed.
