Booth Can't Pass

Recommended Posts

Both Raymond and Burrows deserve to be higher up that list. People really underestimate Raymonds ability to dish off the puck. Personal dislike, however irrational, clouds the ability to make an accurate assessment of his play. His ability to make tape-to-tape passes on the fly is top 5 on the team, easily. Problem is he's usually out ahead of everyone due to his foot speed, and by the time they catch up he's been boxed out by the D and has no passing lane left.

nobody can pass on that 2nd line

not booth

not raymond

not kesler

except maybe higgins when he's assigned there

booth,raymond, kesler are all the same..individual plays with speed and shoot at a distance.

that whole line is a mess

Yess booth Can't pass. I agree with you. My point is remember when Av said kesler does uses linemates. I think he should say the same thing to Booth. I know both Kesler and Booth like to shoot but come playoffs its not about stats. It is about winning the game. Higgin is great passer in the 2nd line.

As for the last game our 3rd line was amazing. especially i was shocked the way Raymond played.

The issue with you bringing up samuelson is if we traded samuelson back for booth, people would be saying

"at least booth hits, and works hard, samuelson is lazy and wont get the puck unless it comes to him"

Each player has there strengths and weaknesses. Samuelson was frustrating to watch at the end, because he simply did not put in his full effort.

Spot on. I saw him pass it right on the stick of the opposing player way too many times yesterday. The guy hustles like a motherfracker but he has no intelligence.

I know I have been thinking the exact same thing since Daniel was out with a concussion. Only problem is they're both Centre's so who can centre the Second line?

sorry he is just not doing enough for what he's getting paid for, especially on the scoresheet. I know he plays physical but man for 4.2 mill a year he HAS to contribute offensively on a regular basis

Interesting thought up in the thread moving Booth to Henrik's line....it goes against all of my sensibilities putting that puck hog on our first line. But, if Henrik wants someone to pass to, this guy makes a lot of sense. He's the guy that passes go to die, and clearly has no chemistry at all with Kesler right now.

Booth-Hank-Burr

Raymond-Kes-Kass(?)

Higgins-Pahlsson-Hansen

Malhotra-Lapierre-Weise

Of all of the sets of AV line changes we've seen, I guess I don't understand why this one hasn't been tried yet?
