I'd have easily given PaP that much, but with the NTC for Manny keeping him safe and no one waning to pay only a pick for Raymond kept Gillis' hands tied.


But I do suspect my reasoning has a major part in why Kassian was acquired. He may not be the prototypical playmaker. But he has the size and tenacity to fit with Kesler and played quite well as the third to Hall and Henrigue in Windsor.
I wouldnt of resigned Raymond or if I did sell him off for whatever I could get. Manny is gone next season anyways.
