Well, there goes one cheap, low risk option for the 2nd line. I hope we get a top 6 forward back for Luongo when he moves... any Higgins/Hansen/Raymond/Booth combo of wingers is not so great.

^ Agreed. We could do a lot worse for second line wingers. I'm fine with Booth, Higgins or even Hansen for a temporary guy on the second line.

I've been saying for awhile how Schroeder should really play right wing with Booth and Kesler (when he gets healthy). He could be that playmaker that everyone so desperately wants for those two. Additionally, Kesler and Booth could provide the space on the ice that Schroeder might need given his somewhat limited size so that his skill can take over.

Duh, been saying this since the summer. I have no idea why people actually thought he was an option this year.
