Raymond is back to being Raymond

I agree! Sadly I think we'll see him traded before the seasons out, along with Ballard :s

Would lead the Canucks in goals if it wasn't for the screwing he received vs the Stars.

Trade Booth if he doesn't perform and make Raymond a lock on that second line! He deserves it :)

It feels soooo goood that he's doing so well after all the hate he's gotten. I hope he continues playing this well.

umm, no hes not. I was at that game, he looks lost out there. Yeah he scored. But hes not "back". I hope we dont sign him again next year really. He fell so many times. And why does he have to skate really fast, slam on the brakes and then pass?? Can he not skate and pass at the same time?? Hes the only one on the team that does it too! Then he falls! He works hard to get the puck only to lose it again.

Highest scoring Canuck not including the 3 Swedes is pretty impressive. Also our most consistent scorer by a long shot - he's been scoring and producing all season long whereas Kassian and even the Sedins haven't been playing amazingly since game 1.

Right now he's on pace for a shade under 30 goals which is where everyone expected this kid to be. He deserves 2nd line minutes with Kesler and Booth without a doubt.

The Sedins and Kesler are obviously our best forwards but I would put Raymond as our best secondary scorer, if not part of our core now. He's even outscoring Burrows who has the luxury of the twins setting him up. We're lucky to have 3 great primary scorers, 3 fantastic secondary scorers (Burrows, Raymond and Booth) and now 3 great tertiary scorers (Hansen, Higgins, Schroeder).

Raymond has been earning his keep as of late, hopefully he keeps up the good work. Booth hasn't thus far, the injury was really a set back. If I see absolutely no chemistry this season between him and Kes, I'm all for keeping Raymond and trading Booth.

Raymond, Schroeder, and Hansen is an amazing third line in my opinion. The speed that line possesses, provides momentum and power plays. I'd like to keep it going, I think Raymond needs to play on a line were he's the main shooter.

Wondered why all of those Raymond and Ballard for a bag of pucks trade proposals stopped all of a sudden.

I'm not sure about that. I like Raymond and Schroeder playing together because Schroeder has great vision and playmaking. Kesler is not a good passer.
