Why bother? Raymond scored at a better rate than Kulemin last year (same points per game, more goals per game) while playing a similar level of defensive game and we want him on the 4th line.

I don't want to trade Luongo for basically Kadri and a 1st that depends on everything continuing to go right for the Leafs on the offensive side. Leaf fans are high on their team's potential to make the playoffs because their two leading scorers put up 20 more points each than most expected last year, I think it might happen but I wouldn't be willing to bet on it.

IMO that's not even close to close.
