Raymond's 2nd most productive season beat Kulemin's 2nd most. So Kulemin has not always produced more.
What worries me the most is that, every team has a player or more,
who just doesn't fit in, is always the throw away, the add on in trade rumours. Raymond appears to be that guy in Van. I just don't want to trade away, someone who has been great in any situation, for another Lombardi. Its seems like we're solving a problem for you.
Raymond should not be confused with a cap dump. The frequency of his inclusion in trade packages has little do with his actual value to the Canucks. If it did, Bieksa would have been shipped out a long time ago. Fan perception is often just that.
Gillis could have dumped Raymond as an unsigned RFA. He didn't. He chose to allow Raymond another chance. We'll see if he was right to do so. With a full offseason of training to strengthen his back, I like his chances to regain his prior form.
