Will The Raymond Hate Ever End?

222 posts in this topic

He hasn't been playing bad, but much like most of the Canucks, he is NOT producing, and hasn't been for the most part of the season.

The playoffs don't matter if he was playing like crap during the regular season.

* Not consistent

Ryan Kesler is on a big contract and he has played well this year, only his offence was crap

* People will always be biased towards Kesler (fan favorite)

Elder is going to be the target now until he can play like the Edler right before the All-star game.

I don't really think Kesler has been given a complete free pass, alot of people are complaining about him, saying we should maybe trade him or move him to wing, exc. (I know typical right?)

But atleast Kesler brings alot more than Raymond does,

-Faceoffs, speed (like mayray), goes hard on the forecheck, great shot blocker, goes hard to the net, goes to the dirty areas and whatever else.

Raymond has speed, but he always falls down when he makes sudden turns or when he stops up, he doesn't create chances for anyone else but himself and he never finishes, hes decent on the PK but he doesn't really block shots he's just good at intercepting passes and that's about it.

Honestly Raymond is only valuable on the PK because of his Speed, that's really all he brings in general, and since he has to play top 6 (Apparently) he needs to produce and since he doesn't we should move him and have someone else take that position.

what are you talking about?!? hated on NOW?

hes been hated on for a long time, and for good reason!... yes, he has been one of our better players so far - but that really isnt saying much!

raymonds 'defensive game' is so over-rated, its basically die-hard raymond fans trying to think of reasons to keep him... because he sure as hell isnt scoring! take a look at his playoff numbers!, its not like raymond not producing is a new thing... your too lazy to look up his stats? ok here.

49GP 7G 9A 16 points, and the defensive superstar has a stunning -4.

people hating on raymond isnt confined to the 3 games this playoffs... and if you think they are, you need to open your eyes and ears OP... and comparing him to kesler? COME ON.. HOW MANY SELKE TROPHIES DOES RAYMOND HAVE? HOW MANY 40 GOAL SEASONS??? HOW MANY 30 GOAL SEASONS??? ZERO? WAKE UP!

7 goals in 49 playoff games which mean 7 in 46 not including this year while playing healthy on a second line.

Not good enough the hate will end when he's gone.

I liked Raymond but this year I saw the light or was it all the falling down,stopping and curling off before the net and outside useless shoots.

Shows flashes of speed and dash but that's it and someone else can fill his role. I see him being signed then traded for a pick.

HItting effectively?? NOT falling?? Creating chances???

Are you watching the same games that everyone else is watching??

The only time that Raymond isn't falling is when he DOESNT have the puck.

Give him the puck and he'll drop to the floor faster than you can count to 5.

It will end if he starts performing and putting up points but its probably too late for that.

He's great at falling down and firing pucks straight into the goalie crest.
