If Raymond can get 45-50 points and bring it consistently all season then by all means Nonis should resign him but if the guy tails off then let him walk.
His career didn't "go off the rales". He was one of the victims of the salary cap going down and any other year would have been signed way before camp.

As for the second part, I agree. If he adds 45-50 points and plays well defensively that would be quite the steal.
