@FarhanLaljiTSN

Booth out 4 to 6 weeks. Still calling it a groin strain. #canucks


Ann Schmaltz@annschmaltz

Booth suffered the injury Sunday morning during fitness testing. @VanCanucks


Ben Kuzma@benkuzma

Vigneault on Booth's injury impacting second line: "Obviously, guys like Ebbett and Schroeder are going to get a serious look."


Is it just me or has David Booth never really made sense here in Vancouver? The guy just doesn't feel like a Canuck. He rubs everyone the wrong way with his character, has not panned out in terms of point production, and has had horrible injury luck.

2/3rd of our 2nd line gone for a lengthy amount of time in a 48-game season. Oyyy.

If he's was actually training and staying in shape during the lockout rather than hunting he may not have hurt himself during physicals.

Uh-oh. Our 2nd line is looking mighty weak right now.

EDIT: I think we should move Burrows down to the 2nd and try Kassian on the 1st. Our 2nd line is just way to weak now without Booth and Kesler. Moving Burrows down would make that 2nd line a lot stronger. But of course if Kassian doesn't work with the Sedins... Ahhhh! This isn't the type of season where you can experiment with things. FRACK.

So 3-5 weeks that matter. That's not really that bad. Still shouldn't have happened.

Yeah, honestly. If only we could buy him out and let him go hunt pythons with his redneck friends in Florida. I feel like he'd enjoy it more anyways.

Either trade and get a player back we can use now, or look to the UFA market. There's only so many people we can call up to our second line and hope it still works.

Sure would be nice to have had Jensen attending camp now.

Not that bad in a normal season. 4-6 weeks in a 48-game season means he'll miss 16-24 games. That could amount to nearly 50% of the regular season. Combine that with the fact that Kesler is also out and it spells trouble for the Canucks.

LW is the position the Canucks can most afford to sustain an injury imo.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Guy was on pace for 22 goals last year... not stellar but pretty normal for a second line winger nowadays so I'm not sure how he hasn't panned out... never mind he actually drives the net.

The Canucks only play 18 games over the next 6 weeks. He'd have another 4 days off before he'd miss game #19 if he actually misses the longer term of injury. It's not ideal but the sky certainly isn't falling.

Exactly what I was thinking.

We need to deal Lou and bring in help or potentially be prepared for a very iffy start to the season.

I think we need to look at singing a free agent forward very soon so that it doesn't look like we're desperate to trade Luongo and fill holes.

I was just on here posting a couple of days ago that there will be a lot of groin injuries this year. This is what happens when players aren't in shape and get over worked. The season hasn't even begun yet and Booth is out. What happens when these guys have to play back to back games on the week end.

I've had a groin injury before and it sucks.

The players that played in Europe and AHL will be far better off as far as these types of injuries go.

Not good. Now our depth chart to start the season will have to be:

Sedin Sedin (Burrows or Kassian)
Raymond Schroeder (Burr or Kass)
Higgins Lapierre Hansen
Pinizotto Malhotra Weise

Some of the 4th liners can be replaced but i've been a fan of Pinizotto ever since he destroyed Glencross last year. This lineup looks serviceable, but only if things go perfectly. There's very little room for error or injuries...

wow! You really have never hunted, yes he bow hunts and does sit in tree stands a lot but hunting is a "physical" activity. And also you think he went cold turkey at the gym? Ur delusional

Nope.
I'm sorry but I respect people who own up to their shortcomings. When the defending Stanley Cup finalists and 2x Presidents Trophy winners are knocked out in the first round of the playoffs, I want to hear the team talk about what went wrong. I don't want players who tweet verses of the bible as explanations of how it is just a part of life.

Every other player admitted that they didn't play up to expectations. No one else was quoting scripture.

With a $4 million salary comes high expectations. When they are not met, I would hope that he could be a man and admit that he underperformed.

Here is a sampling of his tweets. Check out the comments everyone made in that thread:
