Kassian and Booth are just day to day. They'll be ready for the opener

Booth is four to six weeks Dr White.

Anyone expecting another 16 goal season is going to be very disappointed. That was a shooting percentage fluke that won't happen again. Something along the lines of 5-10 goals and 25-30 points is probably realistic.

Having said that, he is one of the best shut down defenceman in the game, so this was still a really good signing.

Although Ballard seemed more accurate, Garrison's slapper is HUGE. When it went high, hit the glass and came around the boards, it made my wife pee a little ;)

While I agree he isn't likely to put up so many goals again, I don't think it was his shooing percentage that drove it so high. The team's shooting percentage when he was on the ice was 7.15%, and his individual was 9.5%. That was a bit higher, and is a bit higher than average, but not a lot so. The previous year, he had 5 goals but his shooting percentage was 4.3% - very low despite a few goals in a mainly defensive role.

Put him in a role where he'll get offensive chances and not just defensive work, and he'll get goals. I could see anywhere from 7-9 but more if he really clicks on the PP.

If this team lets go of Sang he will burn this team next year.
