Healthy Higgins, all day every day.

Is this really a question even?

P.S. Here's why: Raymond is a good scorer when healthy, however Higgins isn't one dimensional - he can play Offensively, defensively, and on special teams.

Raymond isn't really one dimensional but Higgins is also more consistent in those areas

In general it would be Mr. Versatility Chris Higgins. Raymond definitely has higher upside but when he doesn't play up to it he's not that good, whereas Chris can fit wherever in the lineup and contribute.

They're pretty much the exact same player... Except for one thing.

Higgins can hit people, whereas Raymond can fall down.

Raymond easily. he's a better player when he's at his best (09-10)

He can be a legit top 6 forward on any team, something Higgins isn't unfortunately.

It just sucks Raymond became so bad because I was a huge fan and he was a really good player for us.

There is a difference between healthy and prime.

Raymond healthy still sucks.

But Raymond on his game is a legit top 6 forward.

I'll take Raymond when hes on his game (09/10)

Higgins is way better then raymond when he was healthy what did he do in the playoffs nothing he had one good year and he declined ever since where as higgins was with us a year and a half played really good in the playoffs really good this season and can he moved up or down the line up then u can try every possible combonation with raymond and he still sucks raymond should be in the minors

You make a very good point. Raymond has been injured ever since his breakout year in (09/10) which was his 3rd year in the NHL. he had a thumb injury during the (2010/11) season where he missed 10 games and that back injury that cost him the most of last season and all of last off season. What I'm trying to get to is that we haven't seen Raymond healthy ever since 09/10

Higgins is way better then raymond when he was healthy what did he do in the playoffs nothing he had one good year and he declined ever since where as higgins was with us a year and a half played really good in the playoffs really good this season and can he moved up or down the line up then u can try every possible combonation with raymond and he still sucks raymond should be in the minors

Raymond and Higgins had the same amount of points during the 2010/11 playoffs and Raymond was one the the only good players for the Canucks during the finals before he was injured he was creating chances. Higgins is way more consistent but Raymond can be more of a dangerous player offensively.

I agree a healthy Higgins I think could produce 60 points if he got a lot of 2nd line and PP time

I think Raymond is a better top-6 player, but Higgins is a better 3rd liner...

Both have strong defensive games but I think Raymond has more offensive upside and can dominate the play by himself at times.

Higgins however gives you a consistent effort and grit every second of every game.

Hard to say.

This is more of a comparison of what Raymond WAS to what Higgins IS. I'd still take Higgins if we were to compare both at the peak of their career.

I would have to go with a healthy Raymond but not by much. I see people saying that Raymond is head and shoulders more one dimensional than Higgins but in reality, Raymond`s defensive game is very underrated. I know he`s not physical but he`s a lot stronger than he gets credit for and the way he sees the game and his speed lend well to the third line if he`s not producing.

I dont know about that, I think it would have to be top 6 time and 1st PP time, he's great on the 3rd but I'm not sure he could handle all that much offensive responsibility. Although our players would probably make it easy for him, so I could see 50+ but Idk about 60+.

:picard: this isn't even a question.... Higgy by a country mile


No way, Raymond for sure.

Were comparing today's Higgins vs 09/10 Raymond.

And I would Raymond everytime, the 09/10 Raymond is a better player.
