Hindsight is always twenty-twenty. Honestly I don't see why there is all the hate towards Ballard and Raymond, their still serviceable players, and recovering injuries is what reduced their value. Raymond will be better after a summer to retrain, and Ballard has been sublime for us, great but under the radar, nearly every night before his injury. The 2nd is a 2nd. Pick are overrated, but it's probably worth less because its ours

Time, friend, time, and they will be "untouchable" to Canucks fans.

Me2, you left out Gunnarson, MacArthur and a 3rd too.
This thread wasnt intended to debate the value of the players, but rather the symbolism from a time period about 4 years ago when the above were all Montreal Canadien fanboys.
