This isn't about whether we "need" a shoot-first or playmaking player, or at least it wasn't when I jumped into this conversation. It was about Raymond "outscoring" Grabner, which isn't entirely true (Assists yes, Goals no). Whether or not you feel we need Raymond more than Grabner is a totally different discussion.

*btw Raymond is hardly a "playmaking" forward. His tunnel-vision and penchance for skating the puck into oblivion are well known around these boards. Just because Grabner is worse doesn't turn Raymond magically into a playmaker.
