Solution for Mason Raymond?

120 posts in this topic

I've been thinking, everybody hates Raymonds perimeter play, it's frustrating and sickening to watch him go up and down aimlessly. So I thought of this idea, why not move Raymond to center? This forces him to stay in the middle and use his speed to creat chances for his wingers. Plus, we are in need of a reliable 3rd line center, and Raymond is also very good defensively.

The only problem is faceoffs and the fact that he isn't that big third line center we always wanted. I for one really want to try this out for a good period of time though. And if it really isn't working, we can always make a deadline deal or insert Manny or Lappy back in there.

Here is my lineup with Raymond centering the third line: (With Shane Doan)

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows

Booth-Kesler-Doan

Higgins-Raymond-Hansen

Manny-Lappy-Kassian

Without Doan:

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows

Booth-Kesler-Kassian

Higgins-Raymond-Hansen

Manny-Lappy-Volpatti/Weise/Bitz

Thoughts?

Move him to C, eh?

Expect him to lose every draw since he will just fall down every time he pulls forward.

Why not just sign Wellwood for 3rd line center then? He is a step ahead of everyone else on that front.
