That is debatable. Raymond gets a lot of hate by Canucks fans. It's because he's so fast and has the tools to be more than he's shown. That and falling down. However, you can't judge him on last year's performance after coming back from Boychuk breaking his back in the finals. He has had a 25 goal, 53 point season. That was while shuffling between the second and third line. Bozak had a great season last year, but his numbers were heavily propped up by his line mates. Raymond is a fantastic penalty killer. He is criminally underrated by Canucks fans, but is a second line winger on most teams in the NHL. The Canucks fans also knock him for his size/lack of grit. He isn't the useless trade bait fodder that some people make him out to be.
