Am I the only one who kinda feels bad for David Booth? When he was first signed here in Vancouver, the first thing that came to his mind was playoffs. He needed the playoffs. He hasn't ever been in the post season in Florida. Now that the Canucks lost, and Florida will probably advance, how do you think this guy feels?

If it was so important to him wouldn't your effort reflect that? Hmm poor Booth? No Poor Lu and Corey dealing with the pathetic effort the guys in front gave.

Don't feel bad for him, he was one of the Canucks problems in the playoffs. Also he's probably out buying a new home, car or speed boat so no i don't feel bad for him.......AT ALL!

I defended his earlier Roosevelt tweet and still do - but in no way do I feel sorry for him at all.

I can't say whether he gave everything he had to this playoff "run" because I'm not sure. For all I know, he could have worked his butt off. But from the looks of it - I don't believe that to be true. I wish I could have seen more desire and urgency from him, but I didn't and I hate that. All I'll remember from these playoffs from Booth are the countless turnovers in our defensive zone.

Whatever, for Booth - I'm sure his $4.5 million will comfort him <_<

This is the best thing i've heard on here in months. It pissed me off too, he's acting like he's holier-than-thou and not taking any blame at all ! I had a feel this guy would be a problem when we first got him and he was spouting his religious views every two seconds.
Every interview with him i feel like i've answered my door to a evangelist. Don't get me wrong, to each their own but don't throw it in my face ever minute like your better than i am.

He played hard in the first few games, was one of the only players who showed up to lay a hit. Atleast he was bustin a** even though unproductively. Kinda got put in an odd spot with the twins when the series was on the line after like 2 hours of practising with them. People blaming him about who he accounts his praise and defeat to need to shut the **** up, he seems to have a good work ethic and im sure he holds himself accountable for all that he can control.

Booth did not live up to his contract since signing and Florida knew it was a bad signing so they moved him. That said, Booth can live up to his hefty contract. I believe a summer off and a training camp for Kesler and himself will do a world of good. Or im just trying to make s**t up for our team losing in the first round to make myself feel better about all the bad contracts we have going on.

OK guys, I'm taking the heat for this one.
I have posters of Luongo, Salo and Daniel Sedin on my wall.
What happens?
Luongo gets eviscerated in the regular season, Salo gets Marchanded, Daniel gets a concussion.
I put up a poster of Kesler, and he disappears.
I put up the Province poster of David Booth and he goes goalless in the series.
I put up a poster of Hamhuis and he falls and gives the puck to Stoll.
The clincher?
I've had a poster of Raymond up since 2010.

Obviously I've got some supernatural influence or something.


BUT DON'T WORRY.
I'm going to paint a huge Tim Thomas mural on my wall next.

He's a true sport. Professional athelete, he goes through this every day of his career. I"m sure he's happy the Panthers are doing well. You either win or lose. Feel bad? I'm sure 20 other guys actually feel worse, from what happened last year to this, disaster.

November 20th 2013, Canucks just lost their 5th straight game. Last time this happened the Canucks, they missed the playoffs.

I actually thought his effort was good especially in the final two games with the twins. he was driving to the net as usual and made some good passing plays by gaining entry into the zone, doing a button-hook and dishing it off to a Sedin while driving to the net for a return pass. I thought it was dangerous almost every time. Good alternative to Burrows if you ask me.

People are just butt-hurt about the loss and need to point the blame on somebody. Unfortunately, you could do that for almost every player aside from Schneider, Luongo to an extent, and the Sedins. Everyone else was either making detrimental mistakes, taking bad penalties, or just plain old not producing enough. It was a team loss. stop blaming individuals as if it was only their fault.

4.25 million per year....at 82 regular season games and 5 playoff games means he 'earned' $48,851 PER GAME. Or roughly $2,500 per MINUTE played...

Still feel sorry for him?

His real worth should be roughly $2M.

Maybe $2.5M tops.

$4.25M? Give me an effing break. Whoever scouted this dude needs to be fired.

For a player that AV says doesn't know how to pass he looked like he pretty descent at it playing with the Sedins.
Compared to the nonexistent passing between Kesler and himself.

Lets hope Kesler now realizes he's not a 40 goal scorer and starts playing a more complete game again like a few years ago.
Hey Kes most of those 40 were tip ins in front of the net. He may get 40 goals again pulling a Holmstrom if front of the net but must remember he's no sniper but a solid two way player who can score some.

Yeah no kidding! One of the most overpayed players in the league. For that kind of money you should be making "differences" in games. I didn't see anything. F**** him.
