Raymond's strength was that he drove play. He was never a huge offensive threat, and won't be unless he ***** out some soft hands. What he *did* do, was drive possession and get o-zone faceoffs. That allowed AV to play the Sedins in a much more focussed role, and led to greater point production all around.

Since he broke his back, Raymond has been a hindrance, not a help. I wish him the best, but I can't justify qualifying him at 2.5 given the year he had.
