Hansen had one more point and Higgins had the same in the playoffs. Neither of them have Raymond's defensive qualities.........This board is crawling with people eager to put those 2 on the 2nd line. He handles the puck better than most of the team.........do you even watch the games?
You are so wrapped up in your dislike for a fine player, any judgement or logic you might have possessed is only a distant memory.
I'm sorry but this is completely
false. Higgins has Raymond bested in nearly every RTSS there is:
Exhibit one: Higgins has 8shg (in 460gp) to Raymond's 2shg (308gp) to Hansen's 2shg (249gp).
So 1.42shg/82gp to 0.53shg/82gp to 0.65shg/82gp.
Exhibit two: Higgins has 302-114 takeaways-giveaways (39-12 this year
). Raymond has 125-75 TA-GA (10-7 this year
). Hansen has 105-51 (25-17 this year
So 53-20 TA-GA
per 82gp to 33-20 TA-GA
per 82gp to 35-17 TA-GA
Exhibit three: Higgins has 280 blocked shots
to Raymond's 68 blocked shots
to Hansen's 75 blocked shots.
So 50 blocked shots/82gp to 18.1 blocked shots/82gp to 25 blocked shots per 82gp.
Exhibit four: Higgins has 517 hits to Raymond's 187 hits to Hansen's 296 hits.
So 92 hits/82gp to 50 hits/82gp to 97 hits/82gp.
