Are you certain Booth will be earning more than Raymond? Raymond's competition in FA are Stalberg/Bickell. Depending on how things shake out, I can see him getting 4m per from some team. Top6 forwards with his attention to defense are hard to find.

If Raymond re-signs for that amount, 3.25m AAV, then yeah it could work. I don't know if he signs for that amount though when 4m+ will be waiting for him in FA.
Obviously there's no certainty in predicting future contracts, but I'm confident he won't be getting more than $4.25 on the open market. The chances of him turning down that kind of deal from Vancouver, where he's played his whole career and has recently started a family, are slim to none IMO.
