Hilariously bad ? He's a. 20 goal scoring winger who's a good pker. Not hilariously bad . Not sure if serious.

He has so much more to give.. It's frustrating seeing him revert to his old self . He was driving the net and cutting to the middle a couple weeks ago .

I like mason , but booth is better . He will drive To the net . Raymond better pick up his game soon because booth and hansen are pushing him out .

Okay, Raymond isn't the smartest player around but he's got soft hands, has incredible speed and has been playing a very good two-way game as of late. Not sure why you would say something like that.

I didnt know that Mason raymond was apparently the worst hockey player in the history of the Canucks and that some people probably would rather have Byron Ritchie.

Mason Raymond is like if you took one of those movies where the runt of the litter grows up to become the leader of the pack and try that story in reality. Raymond is Babe the pig living out a fantasy where there's no talking spiders to help him play hockey.

As Would I. I would cream my pants if we were able to get Moen.

I would be shocked if moen was not dealt at the deadline anyway. MTL is clearly not going to push for a playoff spot, he's a UFA with a 1.5 Cap hit. Just a perfect fit. 7 goals 5 assists in that cup run with the ducks. Has size, can skate, plays physical and can shut down players. Yes please. YES YES YES TO MOEN!

Do not underestimate Jared Boll.

Dude has never put up great numbers in the NHL (career high 14points) but he's playing on the jackets and not with any decent players.

Has playoff warrior/hero written all over him.

With the inevitable injuries, he can be an excellent replacement and his cap hit is next to nothing

He's not a bad option on the 3rd line playing with Hodgson and Hansen against the opposing teams' 3rd pairing of D and average forwards.

He should also take a pay cut though because he's being paid like a manager when he's simply the guy who re stocks the shelves.

I'd use Manny as an extra body in the playoffs where you want your 4th line to be physically punishing.

a 4th line of Moen, Lappy and Boll would be great. The first 2 having played a bit together in Montreal.
