Raymond is a solid 2-way player that back-checks like a madman. He's soft as hell, but very fast and coachable. He's also not afraid to get dirty in front of the net when healthy. His speed alone makes him worth having on a roster. He kills penalties and works his ass off every night. I'm not ready to dump him at his current market value, and neither should Gillis.
Trading Raymond now would be poor asset management.
I'd rather play him all year and see what he can do.
Rangers aren't moving Boyle, Abdelkader is very limited and Handzus doesn't have much left. It's a good thought and the thread hasn't been a total train-wreck like anything else that has the words "Vancouver" or "Canucks" in it though.
Nailed it. You don't trade players that are at an all-time low in value. It's horrible asset management and Raymond can bring far more to the table then what he could fetch in return....unless of course the rangers actually want to move Boyle
