grabovski scored a hatrick last night that's my ammo against the leafs fans at my work that are attacking me this morning.

Not only that but the $8 million dollar man was a -2!

MayRay is a far more honest player than Kessel has ever dreamt of. The criticism of Raymond is fair enough. My big disappointment was Gillis never moved him earlier and got something back in return. His flashes of brilliance must have blinded MG. :)

He'll be in their top-6 and he'll score 20-25 goals. Huge game winner in the season opener, he will do well with the Leafs during the regular season.

The reason the Canucks didn't sign him was his pathetic play in the playoffs. Sure a bunch of guys could have been in the same boat, but Raymond brought nothing to the table when it mattered most.

I'm sorry, but the reason the Canucks didn't sign him is that GMMG is borderline mentally retarded. Didn't TO get him for a mil?
How come MG couldn't do that? Oh, that's right, he's the one who offered him 3 mil and an NTC.
And BTW, useless in the layoffs in another hyperbolic CDC myth.

Miller is not on our list. It's Lack as our #1. There is no reason we would have traded both Schnieder and Luongo if we never intended to give Lack the #1 starting job.  Furthermore, the salary and term Miller is looking for is not in our favor.

Toronto got him for 1 mil because 29 other teams didn't want him. Hell Toronto didn't even want him unless he signed for 1 mil. Raymond sucks end of story.

Clearly you seemed to have missed the fact that teams had the whole summer to sign Raymond. Raymond was signed for only a million because he had no other options, genius.

Grabovski scored a hat-trick first game of the season.

So does it go Nonis out GM'd by GM and MG out GM'd by GM to the next degree?

Makes sense I guess.

No, but it's pretty obvious MG let go of a cheap secondary goal scorer that could have used a year under a new system. Our scoring a joke now lol. What do we have? A plug like Dale weise?

Good for Raymond. 1 mill for a top 9 forward is a great deal

It was time for the Canucks to move on with Raymond, he didn't have anything to offer in the playoffs.

Who in our bottom 9 have we replaced him with that has something to offer at all?

Jensen should have been the guy to take his spot at 900k.

Clearly he wasn't ready. So we'll have to wait for him to develop a bit in the AHL.

Look at our current injury-riddled line up and tell me you wouldn't add Raymond for one million. Hell, 1.5 mill even.

Good for mayray, Raymond just didn't click in Vancouver. He needs an offensive rush team, which is exactly what the leafs are.

Two complete different team visions now he is playing for a team where he can succeed, good for him.

MayRay is playing some damn good hockey (not surprised in the least).

I have to laugh at Jay Feaster's comment regarding Raymond:

"We don't need a Mason Raymond type player..."

LOL. If he's good enough for Toronto's second line, he's good enough for the Flames.

Lupul Bolland and Raymond are the Leafs best line tonight.

No he didn't offers anything. Hence the PTO to start the preseason.

Raymond's slapping the haters hard.

Still you people miss the fact that he went to Toronto as a last resort? Every team passed on him during the summer.

Its only been a few games, give it some time, he's very streaky. In a month everyone will be saying how much he sucks. He was very streaky and inconsistent in Vancouver and he will be the same in TO.

I always wondered why we gave Shredder another year but not MayRay. I think he's a better fit in Toronto but another year to see how he does under Torts would've been interesting. Wish him the best, he had some good years here, gonna miss yelling at my tv for him to stay on his skates.

One is 23 who needs a chance to show what he has to offer ... The other is 28 and we already know what he has to offer ...

Here's my bold prediction: By season's end, Raymond (a third liner in TO) has more points than anyone on the Canucks not named Sedin.

What a dumbass...nooo, unless everyone on the top two lines have added Sedin as their middle name, and lol its not like I even expect us to have a good season.

Raymond hasn't just been putting up points so far, he's been very noticeable in games and has so far won 2 of them pretty much by himself. Game winner the first time, game winner in the shootout tonight. He is finally getting more responsibility and is shining.

Clearly wasn't a fit with the Canucks style of play and definately wouldn't have worked with Tortorella so it's not as if Vancouver's missing out on him. Meanwhile, MG went and found 2 players who fit Tortorella's mould perfectly - Santorelli and Richardson, and they are playing Torts hockey perfectly.

Come playoff time, guys like Richardson and Santorelli playing under Tortorella's grinding, fast forecheck system will have much more success than Raymond and Carlyle's run and gun offence. This is the biggest thing MG has learned over the last 3 seasons and is subtely the biggest improvement a GM can make to his team.

So after 3 games, Raymond has more points than anyone on the Canucks including the Sedins ! Am I really a dumbass?

Also, he's almost half way to the total points Kassian will get all year !

The fact you are comparing the Sedins to MayRay makes you a dumbass.
Raymond did the exact same thing last year. He came out of the gate hot and then went 20 games without a goal. Canucks need playoff warriors not soft perimeter players. Though for $1mil he would have been good insurance...
