How can Raymond demand more than Burrows or Samuelsson on the Canucks? the only thing he has on them is he is younger..which is why he will make 2.75 mil
Thats like saying why Kesler earns more than them. Its all about timing and 2.75 is already more than either player you mentioned. Based on Raymond's stats, it can range from anywhere between 2.5 - 3.5 (inflated due to some recent signings but i somehow doubt it will be over 3 mil). His production at the end of the season dropped off and that at least cost him .25-.5m.

Given his current status, if we reaches a deal with MG, i doubt its for more than 3 years as his agent would probably want to hit the UFA market ASAP (which would be in 3 years). Something along the lines of 7.5/3 seems likely as that contract seems to be MG's favorite contract. Of course with MG, he might be able to add a few years to the deal (if he's high enough on Raymond) and add a bit of money like he did with Kesler.
