How long must we suffer watching Raymond "hustle" around the perimeter doing nothing? He brings nothing to the game outside of a token PK role.

What is the point of dressing this guy anymore? Waive him, trade him... anything. There are no positives to his game that make the team better for having him.

I have had enough of this guy.

We're two games into the year. Can we cool it with the "(x) player is useless" threads? Nobody's looked very good so far.

I'll wait until the second line is healthy and got in several games together before actually judging Raymond. All due respect to Ebbett, but he isn't a NHL regular and that is Raymond's playmaker, so.

Certainly is his last season with the Canucks if he doesn't start to perform. Raymond should play in Europe, where he can have all the room in the world to skate around the perimeter. He not a top 6 and he doesn't play like a bottom 6 should.

If it was any other player, I would agree with stone cold. However, it is Mason Raymond we are talking, in which case I would agree with the OP

Was Raymond better before he broke his back? Haha, ya, sure.
This is the same sack of useless that he always was, nothing has changed. Why keep making the same mistake? Does this guy make any line better? No. He does nothing well. How is it then that he helps this team? This guy is not going to become the player that your well-wishing hopes he does so give up and admit it.

It is time for Raymond to go.

I'll wait till Booth and Kesler gets back before judging him, but you know who else is as soft, useless and makes the same money as Raymond? Malhotra.

I cant wait till Ballard,Malhotra and Raymond's contracts are up. Those 3 take up almost 10m of our cap space and none of which are impact players.

Honestly if we want a real shot at the cup this year Raymond and Malholtra need to be replaced by players who are big and gritty and that will MAKE AN IMPACT during the playoffs.

He is on a contract year, he will have to play good. But a winger is only as good as his center, Ebbett sucks.

With all due respect to Ebbett,Raymond is making $2.3m while Ebbett is paid a quarter of that amount.
Ebbett is the least paid of all the Canucks.VanDemeer and Volpatti share his same payment.
Schroeder will make $1.1 million if he is put in a third c position.

Leave Raymond Alone!!!!!!!!!!!!1!11







All seriousness though,
Like others have mentioned it's only been two games, which makes me seriously question your patience levels, which makes me contemplate whether you have stress and anger issues. I suggest counselling ::D

explain how you think he a good checker? I mean, I would say he is average in puck pursuit but feeble in doing anything in battle.
