This is why Vancouver fans piss me off. Florida is making a push for the playoffs for the first time in 8 years, they want a deal that will make them a better hockey team NOW, not in a couple years.
Raymond got some speed yeah, but being fast doesn't automatically mean you're going to be a great player one day. Look at Lombardi of the Flames, he's a prime example. And Johnson is barely worth a 5th round pick.
Look, if the Canucks were to aquire him it'd take a hell of a lot more than this ********. We're talking about some key component to the Canucks franchise. Jay-Bo is the type of guy you can build your team around for years and years. The Panthers would probably get a 1st round pick in 09, and one in 2010 too, aswell and a solid defenseman in Ohulund or Bieksa and decent upcoming forward like Burrows or Kesler.
You need a reality check, Mister "avengedsevenfold" this isn't like making those "awesome deal" trades on your Dynasty Mode for NHL 09.
How many Vancouver fans think this trade is a good one?
Nobody thinks it's fair, except for the topic creator who I don't think has made a worthwhile post...ever.
