We also have one of the leagues worst prospect pool!! I think we Canuck fans are in for hell soon, aging team, lots of question marks around our stars about health and on the decline, who all have NTC but we have nothing coming up that could replace them. Edler is UFA next summer so the possibility of losing our best and youngest D man who is our # 1 guy will be a nightmare, Gillis has a ton of work this summer.


I think I mentioned in another post that our last defensive prospects that we drafted to make OUR team were Bieksa and Edler. That is absolutely pathetic. (Bourdon doesn't count since he's no longer with us)

Which is why he has been trading off all our top prospects and draft picks - Grabner, Hodgson, etc.

How is Grabner doing now? Hodgson didn't want to be here! Next....

Hodgson got shafted and Gillis keep's signing VERY mediocre 3rd and 4th line players and...and is on course to re-sign Raymond.

That ruins your argument then as Raymond, when fit is an exceptional player. I hope he does stay and I hope he lights us up next season. It just goes to show how much more the likes of MG and AV know about assessing a hockey player than the keyboard jockeys on here................but hey even a stopped clock get's it right twice so keep the faith.

Problem is he won't light it up on Keslers wing; Kesler would have to pass for that to happen.
