The Sedin's 6th Sense

How the Canucks have Developed Tanev So Nicely

Recommended Posts

Pretty much how Vancouver seems to work, ship out prospects and keep giving guys like Raymond and Rome chances.

In Raymond's defense, which prospect do you replace him with? And with Rome, he at least brought physicality and size that Tanev does not, so that can justify the reason to play him over Tanev.

That's why we re-signed Rome right?... Also Rome would have got less ice time if Ballard didn't play like utter crap 50% of the time he played...

And before you cry about Raymond some more, he may not put up big offensive numbers but he is very solid defensively...

But I suspect you know more about evaluating players than MG, AV, and Bowness right?

He almost reminds me of Hammer in a way. Not exciting to any degree but he can get the job done without leaving a mess.

Raymond is probably one of the best 3rd line LW defensive players in the league.

But, meh, I like Higgins better. I honestly think Raymond's defensive play is better than Higgins', but I Higgins has a better upside in terms of offense. Yeah yeah, Raymond scored 25 goals, whatever. We'll see what happens in training camp.

It's pretty much Higgins vs Raymond for that 3rd line LW spot. With both playing at their absolute best, that's a serious question mark.

*Shrug*....

Have you seen how people on CDC praise Schneider? He has only played 68 games, yet he is treated as the next coming of Patrick Roy...
