Another poll to kill time during the lockout: who do you think should be traded from the roster already based on previous past couple seasons/playoffs? Could be due to poor play, too many missed chances or overrated, etc. anyone from current roster or ahl farm team.

For me it's a close tie between Raymond and Booth. Raymond due to poor very poor play, booth for his overratedness and untimely antics.


David Booth - just trade em already....

How are you grading players on there playing abilities when they haven't played since the playoffs?

How can you trade players when they are locked out?

Where is the poll?

This thread of killing time is killing brain cells.

Booth didn't play a full season with the team yet and it took him a bit to adjust to the team and when he found his game injuries occured. You can't expect him to be the best player on the team with only a year being here. Booth and Kesler together showed potential, having both on their A-game and we finally have a solid 2 lines that could take us to the finals :D

I don't like him either, at all, but he is worthless on the trade market, as evidenced by what we got him for last year. We got him for two expiring contracts, nothing more, and that's probably all he'd get us if we tried to trade him now.

He's a cap dump.

I'm not sure what you two are talking about, Booth was Florida's best winger, yes he had struggled but aside from Burrows and Daniel he is our best winger, we have no one like him on our roster, he's an important part of this team, not a cap dumb.

I think they lack brain power as well, but this just hurts when you call people out.

OP has been ripped so I'll let it go. :)

Of those two guys Raymond needs to go. Not because I don't like him as a player, just so AV will stop playing him in the wrong positions and at the wrong times.

In his first season with the Canucks, and without a playmaker on the line, Booth manged 16 goals, and was on pace for +20 if he was healthy.

Higgins for Torres.

Is Higgins a better player? Sure... But our defensive stopper 3rd line misses Rafi, his size and hell bent mentality; which created an ability to match up positively against lines like Marleau / Thornton and Lucic ; Krecji (who did not beat us). We currently do not match up as well defensively, bottom line, without Rafi!

And for all that effort Higgins is known for; where was he versus L.A.?

I'm as down as the next guy for trading Raymond, but this thread has gone full retard when you suggested trading Booth, I thought he played awesome this year despite being on a new NHL team, which is a first for him having played his entire career thus far for Florida, then just as the guy is getting chemistry with his linemates he is derailed by injury; and even despite that injury when he returned he still played pretty decent. Booth, Hansen and Higgins are 3 unsung heroes on this team, every shift they give it their all, and I wouldnt consider trading any of those guys because of their hard work. If only some of the other players on this team played with as much determination as David Booth...

Would love to have Raffi back, dude keeps the other team constantly looking out for him rather than focusing on the play. Was a solid player in every series for us too in our 11 run.

Why am I Extremely Stupid? David Booth was a cap dump to us, and David Booth would be a cap dump from us if he were to be traded by us.

Do you disagree with this?

Imagine the hate the Canucks would get if we brought Torres back?

I would embrace it with open arms.
