      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

Everybody Hates Raymond

[Rumour] Mason Raymond being shopped?

Recommended Posts

Iain MacIntyre@imacVanSun3m

No Mason Raymond on ice for Canucks' skate. Upcoming UFA, 2 days before trade deadline.

UPDATE:

Bob McKenzie@TSNBobMcKenzie

Mason Raymond not on ice with VAN today because he's a little banged up. I do not believe it is trade related altho Raymond's name out there

Due to the Bobby Mac tweet, I have changed the name of this thread to encourage conversation about it instead of the injury

Makes sense to me, considering the HF Boards report that Higgins is close to re-signng.

Edit: Raymond plus a conditional 1st for Clowe.

Canucks probably have to choose one of Higgins, Raymond, or Lappy to let walk this summer.

If we trade for a C at the deadline I would let Lappy walk, but if not, then I would definitely re-sign him and let MayRay walk.

Out of those three, Higgy would be my first priority to re-sign

I thought he earned his keep over Higgins this season. Just my opinion

If so, I hope it's for a package that will get us a solid player. Raymond can actually shoot this year and has been one of the more consistent players on this team.

Raymond's had a huge resurgence in his play as of late.

I would say the only Canuck right now that is able to snipe the puck (which is sad).

Higgins is more gritty, hits harder, plays bigger, wins more board battles, but Raymond's more offensively talented.

Isn't it possible he's just not feeling well?

Raymond's awesome and we'd be fools to let him walk.

Which means his value is at a high.

If I had to choose I'd go with Higgins. Love the game he brings

He's a rental though. Can't be that high. Look at what Iginla and Morrow fetched.

I would be quite surprised if this was due to a trade. We're so thin up front already and with the next 2 days off to make trades why do it now. Plus, what Brahma Bull just said. It would have to be a good return although I'd settle for a very good pick too. Those can always be peddled into a significant player.
