News broke yesterday that Mason Raymond was re-signed for 2.275 million. Ordinarily, a signing like this would fall by the wayside, with not much being mentioned about it. But yesterday was July 9th, and there was absolutely nothing going on in the world of hockey. Mason Ray...

AROUND THE WEB
We found out today via the Vancouver Canucks on Twitter and via their press release that they've re-signed Mason Raymond. It's a 1 year 2.275M contact. WOW. Congrats May-Ray. Your rich.

Raymond getting yet another shot…
Ok, first off, I would like to make a disclaimer, I do not “hate” Mason Raymond. Too often when fans of teams are discussing their squads’ underachievers or busts, they throw personal attacks and disdain onto the player.
By all accounts, Raymond is a great guy, and had had some really good moments with the Canucks, although, none of it...
“Just because you can skate, it doesn’t mean you’re going to have a successful time out there” – Mason Raymond.
In what is probably second only to news regarding Dale Weise in terms of making me aggravated, the Vancouver Canucks have announced that they have come to terms with restricted free agent and worlds filthiest little milt, Mason Raymond.
Raymond, as you may remember...

Vancouver’s UFA’s in 2013 – Part 2
Hey everyone, hope you enjoyed part 1 of our look ahead series on Alex Edler. Today in part two we take a look down the middle of the ice. It’s not the Canucks deepest position, and depending on how this season goes, it could get a little thinner around July 1st, 2013.

Earlier today it was also...

He was once considered Buffalo's top D prospect. Who among us will ever forget Grags' coming out party durinng the first round series vs. Philly in 2011. 7 points in 7 games ain't bad, rookie.
Gragnani started slowly for the Sabres in 2011-12, and was eventually dealt to Vancouver on trade deadline day.
Today, he's a Carolina Hurricane.
Marc Andre Gragnani...
