    Does he still get paid the games he misses due to Covid?

    Raymond has an assist on a nice PPG goal and he’s been getting PK time.

    Glad I'm not only one watching preseason hockey instead of CFB

    Raymond and Larkin have some real nice chemistry this game

    Raymond has two assists on the PP tonight. It’s going to be very hard to send him down.

    My guess

    Fabbri - Suter - Ryan
    Vlad - Ras - Erne
    Smith - Stephens - Berggren

    The Bert thing is interesting because it seemed like he was close to returning, going as far as to play in our scrimmage. Maybe he’s not ready, but I do wonder if a trade might happen.

    Dumb to trade him now, they aren't going to do it

    We won’t trade him for scraps but I assume Yzerman has a return in mind that he would pull the trigger on to get rid of the headache.

    Assuming Raymond plays tonight, this will be a great test

    Smith seems destined for GR at this point, and deservedly so. He isn’t doing anything out there.

    Also, Zadina cannot play with Larkin. He looks quite good with Suter and Fabbri though.

    Assuming Rasmussen is back next week, I would roll the following lines:

    Bertuzzi - Larkin - Raymond
    Fabbri - Suter - Zadina
    Rasmussen - Veleno - Erne
    Namestikov - Stephens - Ryan/Gagner

    I would probably bite the bullet and waive Vlad to make Smith the 13th forward since he has a bit of upside and provides some grit, but that would be the ideal lineup. 0.0001% chance of that happening though.

    I think Raymond should absolutely make team at this point but what I've seen and heard along with wings history still makes me think they start him in GR

    It would be criminal for him not to make team at this point, but the whole way announcers are talking make me feel like they are being fed to temper expectations of him making roster

    Tentative. You can see his talent though. His offense has looked much better than I anticipated but he’s hesitant defensively.

    Looked solid on PP, I like him paired with Leddy. Doesn't seem out of place, but as detox said you can tell he has another level

    And for those not watching broadcasts, my comments about Raymond are based on Ken and Mick two games ago hammered during broadcast that coaches say Raymond has to be head and shoulders basically better than others to make roster because others don't have options. Then even last game they were hammering yea he's impressive but they won't call him up to play on bottom 6 lines so he has to be top 6 line good and that's a high burden. It just feels like they are being told to damper expectations of him making the team. He may not give them a choice though

    Both of them basically gave up pumping the brakes after his goal last night.

    Yea Mick seemed utterly amazed how good he's been after that goal.

    CBJ is dressing a fairly complete lineup, so another good look for Raymond.

    Wings haven’t played good but Raymond looks dangerous in this second period.

    What I think happens:

    Bertuzzi - Larkin - Raymond
    Fabbri - Suter - Zadina
    Erne - Veleno - Ryan
    Namestikov - Stephens - Gagner
    Smith

    - Ras to IR

    Leddy - Seider
    DeKesyer - Hronek
    Staal - Stetcher
    Osterle - Lindstrom

    What I would do (I’ll cheat and say once Rasmussen is back)

    Bertuzzi - Larkin - Raymond
    Fabbri - Suter - Zadina
    Rasmussen - Veleno - Erne
    Namestikov - Stephens - Gagner
    Smith/Ryan


    Leddy - Seider
    DeKesyer - Hronek
    Staal - Stetcher
    Osterle

    Mo is one of the first three picked for the German roster

    This feels close to an opening night roster. The fourth line is probably the Griffs top line.

    Based on how much time Raymond saw with Bertuzzi these last two games, I would think Raymond made the team.
