      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Report] Canucks File 'Cutdown' Arbitration With Raymond

Recommended Posts

The Canucks have shown Raymond loyalty a few times now by re-signing him

I'd hope Raymond reciprocates by not being such a bloody floater of a player next season.

Here's my question. As far as I understand the Canucks can already offer him a contract at 85% of what he makes now. So if the Canucks win the cutdown arbitration, does that mean they can offer at 85% of that amount?

The idea of icing all the same forwards next yr who could only win 1 playoff game - is alarming. Seriously, call 911. Considering they are all under contract next season (minus Pahlsson), it's a distinct possibility. *sobs*

Are you on drugs? Raymond worth 2-3 million dollars? Maybe 2-3 million pucks but not dollars.

He's an RFA and would be worth more to the team if they let him walk, let someone else put in an offer sheet, and collect a draft pick coming our way.

On the surface, taking a player to arbitration for lower pay seems like a harsh way to treat someone who is coming back from a very serious injury. BUT if Gillis informed Mason's camp that the intent is to keep him at 85% of this year's salary and protect him from arbitration, I can see Raymond appreciating that gesture.

I just hope this won't turn out to be another Willie Mitchel in the making.

This clown isn't worth 1 mil!!! he flops around like a fish outta water. He's useless!!!! How can management be so blind!! I was optimistic about next year, but now I'm going to drink myself into a coma so I don't have to see Raymond in a Canuck uniform again!!!!

This is awful news! On par with seal hunting! I'm at a loss for words I tells ya so I'll leave it at this.

Ironic facepalm is ironic.

Re-read what you wrote and kick yourself in the balls.

Most of you posters have stated that Canucks gave given Raymond too many chances and opportunities to shine, and he has failed in all these opportunities.

So if the Canucks have spent so much time and energy trying to develop Raymond, why in the frack would they just let him walk?

When you buy a stock, oh let say Facebook, and it drops from $25 to $15 then again to $5.00. Do you give it away because it was once worth $25? No you sell it for $5.00 or keep it just incase it rises again. Players are investments, remember that.

Do you know how rfa's work? If another team offers him a contract, we get compensation for him. Probably a 3rd rounder for Raymond which is quite a good compensation if you ask me.

When I first heard about this I was f***ing excited as he's my favourite player. I also laughed because I knew there'd be so many people either furious, happy because he'll probably be traded or disgust.

Reading all the things people have posted about him these last few days, I wouldn't be surprised if he got boo-ed at games when he got the puck. He can bring so much to the team and after getting seriously injured his performance wasn't the best. Yeah the season before wasn't his best, but his stats were all improving up until that point.

Personally (and not at ALL biased) I love the move by Gillis. Raymond will hopefully (fingers crossed too tightly I can't uncross them) burst out of the gates at the start of the season and prove all who say he'll be traded wrong.

Go 'Nucks!

If he can score 15-20 goals and 40 points, 2 million is the perfect amount.

I think Kelly just signed in Boston for 3 or 4 million and he's putting up the same points but is obviously more physical.

2,21 million is still too much for Mason Raymond . He does not fill what the Canucks need, grit and size. After the early playoff exit and if this is the best the Canucks can do, I think they are in big trouble.
