How does this look for a deal? Strictly in terms of value and fit for each team I think Booth (+ low pick?) for Johansson works well for both teams.

The 2nd line needs a passer and Marcus fits the speed-oriented style. This team lacks a passer to connect the dots, and while Booth is a good player in his own right Johansson should be a more balanced player who can do things off the rush, whether it's setting up his line-mates or snapping one past the goalie himself. He brings a much needed element of skill and hands to complement the more rugged style that the North American skaters on this team, and he can really benefit from the space created while his mates work down low.

Meanwhile, Washington could use another shooter to fill out their 2nd line (Ribeiro and Marcus both pass first with their 2nd line shooter as Jason Chimera who's more of a 3rd line guy). Booth's physical play would also fit with the Caps' recent trend toward getting tougher for the playoffs (recently brought in Knuble, Brouwer, Hamrlik, Ward...), and with Semin leaving to Carolina they could use another high-level shooter.


Ovechkin - Backstrom - Brouwer
Chimera - Ribeiro - Booth

Twins - Burrows
Johansson - Kesler - Higgins (quick, balanced line)
Hansen - Lapierre - Kassian

Would this be a good move to balance both clubs? Is the value there for both sides? Looking forward to hearing any comments (this beats studying any day haha :P)

We need 2 things right now...a 2nd line Winger to help out that line, and
a 3rd line centre. Essentially we trade away one piece we need, for another piece we need, only to find that the piece we traded for must now fill the hole left by the player we traded away!!!

No, we need a passing winger, and a third line centre, although I don't really think that we desperately need a third line centre, I'm confident that Lappiere can fill that role.

I really like Johannsen as a player but as has been mentioned we need another 2nd line winger so we can't really just trade Booth for one because we're right back in the same situation.

"What players need is the right kind of strength and power. That includes learning to understand that leverage and positioning can be just as important as raw strength when it comes to winning battles in the game. It's more about timing and athleticism --and avoiding injury--than it is about how much you can bench press. I don't know how many times I've seen a guy with the physique of a defensive end line up a guy half his size, only to bounce off when he connects. Sure, there is room in the game for big guys who can throw their weight around. But for the most part, players are smart enough to see them coming--and strong enough to protect the puck when they arrive. There are trainers out there who know how to devlop hockey-specific strength--though a trainer can help only if a player follows the program. All too often, I've seen players sign up with the best trainer, but not show up for their workouts and never to reap the benefits."

I'd go Booth + 2nd for Johansson.
He could play the wing on the 2nd line or be our 3rd line center, since he can play both spots.
He would be the kind of playmaking winger we've been looking for for Kesler as well.

Without a rollback, Washington won't be in a position to take that much salary back.

I'm on the fence with Booth. There were times he looked like a perfect fit, and times he looked out of place - but I think most of the latter had to do with moving teams, injury recovery, and no chemistry with Kesler.

I say keep him. The main reason is from what I saw in the playoffs. He didn't score much, but created a lot of chances, and could have easily potted a few if he had luck and a weaker goalie. And, the main reason, is what he did to Mike Richards. In game one, Richards completely dominated. Early in game two, Booth rocked him - and Richards was downright invisable the rest of the series.

Even when Booth isn't scoring, we can use his grit and toughness.

I always wonder why we think our underachievers are the ones other teams will be interested in
