Jason Botchford and Dan Murphy report that Booth is on the fourth line in practice with Lapierre and Weise. He'll likely start the game today there and I don't mind that. Unless you're a core player like Kesler, you're going to get slowly worked into the lineup, starting with the 4th line. I have no doubt that if he looks good he'll get moved up by the 2nd period.

A lot of fans undervalue Booth. He is big, fast and hell bent to go to the net. That is a rarity on this team. He will also give the Nucks .5pts per game.

HIs down side is his hockey IQ and reckless play, which often leads to injury. His defensive play is lacking as well. He has shown that he doesn't swith to the right side very well.

Booth and Kes clealy need a rw playmaker to optimize their performance. Kass is still pretty green to take over this role, but I don't really see anyone else who can. This is why fans have been screaming for a player that can fit this gaping hole.

I guess we'll have to wait and see what the lines look like after trade deadline.
