Raymond has been cleared to play from his thumb injury for a few days now. Iain MacIntyre is suggesting that Alain Vigneault may not play Raymond against the Avalanche on Sunday night, as the team is doing fine in his absence. Jeff Tambellini and Jannik Hansen are playing their best hockey along side Ryan Kesler on line 2. Bumping Hansen down to line 4 would mean scratching Aaron Volpatti, who looks terrific on that crunch line.
Play the role of Alain Vigneault. Raymond is ready to play so what do you do?
