I was ecstatic when we got Booth and I'm a huge fan of him and don't want to see him traded. But if the time came where we had to free up some cap space, what do you think he could get for us? I'm think a pick of some kind, a good prospect and maybe a roster player with a smaller cap hit.

Nothing because he has to stay here.

Everyone thinks he had a tough year (once he got here) but I don't understand it at all.

If people expected him to score 30 once he got here keep dreaming, and he would have scored atleast 20 if he didnt get hurt, and he was really starting to find his game when he went down, then when he came back it took him time to find it again.

I think he could have scored 25 if he was healthy all year.

Watch him have a good year next year, trading him would be a big mistake, and if would be purely overreacting/being impatient.

Put him in a package deal to get Bobby Ryan.

Booth, Schroeder, Tanev for B.Ryan?

I feel he can still play his best hockey alongside Kesler, they just need a playmaker on that line...or Kesler could just learn how to pass again - he's 2 seasons removed from a 50-assist year.

Booth would easily score 35+ on the top line.

I think after the Luongo trade it will spark a couple trades down the road. Here is what I see our roster being:

Sedin - Sedin - Doan
Booth - Weiss - Kesler
Burrows - Mueller - Raymond
Higgins - Lapierre - Hansen

Edler - Weber
Hamhuis - Garrison
Ballard - Connauton

Schneider
Lack

Too many steps that are required for this roster so I'll just make a new topic on it tomorrow.

Uh, no. Jeez, it's so hard to go through a thread without seeing another clueless post by none other than, DownUndaCanuck.

Booth played with the Sedins in the last couple of games in the playoffs and he was brutal. 1 assist in 5 games, 3 of which he played alongside Henrik. (2 with Daniel)

He sucked, how could he possibly get 35+ goals?

He didnt suck... its hard for a player to come to a new team (Especialy when the season has started) and he was just getting on a roll then got injured and had to start over. so with a good passer he could Easily get 35+ goals.

I agree, I would love to see him there.

As you said we just need to get more of a playmaker on that 2nd line and then there would be a good fit, a solid mix of size, speed. skill, grit, scoring, playmaking.

Well he was one of our best players in the playoffs?

and he could get 35+ the Sedins got Burr 35, and if they can get Burr 35 they can get Booth 35.

I'm not trying to knock Burrows, I absoluetly love the guy but Booth got 30 on his own, I think Burrows might be ableto do it but I'm not 100% sure that he could.


And why did you Quote me then change it?

Just because Burrows can get 35 goals with the twins does not mean everyone can. I'm not a huge fan of Booth, but I understand that he does bring a different element to the team. He's not a powerforward, but he's a great skater that goes hard to the net; a meat and potatoes kind of player. That said, he's a very limited player. Can't dangle or deke well. Below average defensive player. Poor hockey vision. Can't make a decent pass, which brings down his line.

If we get upgrades (read as more than one top six forward), there would be no room for him on the top six, and he's not a player that can have success as a bottom six player. I would move him then, and the return probably wouldn't be high for a player like Booth.

we want booth....he will have a good year...what killed him was the lack of chemistry with kesler....that line needs a playmaker.....maybe try the amex line again...or put burrows with them....maybe booth plays with the sedins and bur and kes reunite....AV will figure it out....

Fanciful! A real stretch. He has had one year of 31 long time ago and you think he would easily score 35? How many guys in the league scored 35 last year? On the Canucks? 14 in the league and 0 on the Canucks. If Daniel stays healthy he maybe gets 35.

He's not the same player he was when he had the big year and who is he going to get power play time over on the Canucks?

Plus his shot totals last year were awful. He's down almost a shot a game from where he was in Florida. If that doesn't change in a hurry I think he has a hard time even coming close to where he was last season. He scored on 11% of his shots. His second best and 3% better than in previous years.

And another poster thinks Booth could do as well as Burrows? Why do so many under value Burrows so much? Scoring goals isn't easy and not everybody can do it. You can't just randomly insert someone on a line and think they will score.

And Booth did not have a great playoff. Almost no points and at least one horrific defensive breakdown.

I disagree completely, Dekeing & Dangling is one of his strong points. He has a great shot which we haven't seen yet but I am expecting to see it more next season. He's a good hitter, and imo he is just as good defensively as any other player, he isn't a defensive specialist but he isn't bad. He's average.

Overall he is an above average player. And his style of game is suited to playing with the Sedins so I think he could play just as well as Burrows or close to it.

I think he's dynamic, Speed, Size, Dekeing ability, overall skill, physicallity. he brings an element to our team that is really tough to find throughout the league, to have that size and speed is really rare, most powerforwards don't have that skating ability (yes I think he's a powerforward, he plays that style).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGMEzEslYfc

What this, you will see his dekeing ability.

And lastly, we need to keep him in our top 6, would take him over any winger we have (after Daniel and Burrows), we have one piece missing from our top 6 and once we get that we will be set. No reason to move this guy he's a really good player.

Edit: I also think his passing, vision, hockey sense and all that you eluded too is just fine, I don't think they are weak points at all.

Stop being so impatient... he got injured in his first year. He has great size, speed and skill. If he can use all these assets consistently then i'd say he has a shot at 30 goals next year. KEEP HIM!!!

Booth has a very high hockey IQ, he follows the play intelligently and knows where to go/what to do with the puck as a result when he gets it on his stick. He also is able to generate offence off the rush, something sorely lacking on this team (though IMO that has more to do with the system than the players we have on the roster).

Booth until last year, had played his entire career in the east, on a mediocre team in a weak division and was one of the best players on that team. I think that once he gets past the bad luck injuries he will be lights out for us, having been exposed now to the west for most of a season I think he can see now how the style is different and will be able to adjust.

For Booth and Kesler to be offensive powerhouses, we don't necessarily require an elite or semi-elite playmaker on that line, while it will help for sure once set up in the offensive zone and on the powerplay, I think more than anything we need to utilize their strengths which are off the rush offence. During the breakout, let the defence send them bombs. We have the defencemen with the requisite passing skills to pull it off, we just need to let them do it.

I'm predicting a 25-30 goal season for Booth, with about 45-50 points total.

Looking back at him in his best season, I think he's bulked up too much since then.

Booth, Jensen, Ballard, 1st for Ryan a 3rd and 4th.

Just making this up on the fly. Haha Ryan would be nice, but doubt we have anything serious to offer.

I'd do it, and Anaheim doesn't hang up laughing, but I think they try for more unless they're desperate.

No gun, just a bow and some arrows.

Tanev is going to EDM. I can put my life savings down on it
