I think it's guaranteed that Raymond will walk. He will get offered $3.5-4 mil on the open market, and the Canucks cant afford that.
I have no problem with moving him in a deal to get an upgrade at the deadline.
Higgins, on the other hand, could probably be re-signed for $2.25-2.5 mil per year, which we can afford.
I'd love to keep him around, he's a good 3rd liner to have.
