we all know what the Canucks need that's a legit sniper/ game changer

still the canucks lack in a game changer.....

I don't get the point of having this guy on the team

it seems like he is out of touch .......before you say oh he just got back give him time

how much time does he need to adjust to the System

last years playoffs when it really matters he was a -1 in 5 games against the kings


so bottom line I don't see the point in having booth on the team hes another kesler why do we need two players like this
darn it gillis get a sniper!

He was one of our best forwards tonight and just returned from an injury?

Edit: and he passes more then Kesler.

BAD MOVE!!!

BAD FING MOVE

HAHAHA ANOTHER INJURED MORON ON OUR TEAM

HE WILL JOIN US IN 2019

Benning will be fired next year. Hope he enjoys screwing around for a few months. I just cant believe this. Another injured BC player. We just got rid of garrison. Seems like the canucks and linden just wanted any BC born player. Doesn't matter if hes good or not. We don't need another Linden to get us to game 7 of the Stanley cup and lose. We need someone to win us a cup.

5 million a year for Vrbata? 6 million for Miller? Kesler for Bonino and 24th instead of 10th pick or one of their top prospects? Garrison for scraps?

ive already lost faith in JB. Ive never EVER had this bad of a feeling about management.

not sure what we could get for him coming back from injury and even before his injury wasn't playing the greatest

the problem i see though is we have ballard and booth with 4 million plus contracts that we all know can't be here next year with the cap going down you know both of them are on the way out im wondering if gillis will move them both at the trade deadline or off season

Agreed absurd post, some players on this team are always going to be a target for fans.

Canucks army actually did a really good article on his stats that many posters on here will not believe.

http://canucksarmy.c...ith-david-booth

I dont have a problem if you would like to trade him but claiming he is so out of touch and how many games does he need....come on, he played good tonight and just returned.

Sami Salo had 0 points and was a -3 in the same 5 games against the Kings. I'm sure glad we dumped that bum when he was clearly worse than Booth (who had an assist and was only a -1, much better!)...

Booth was legit in the playoffs. The only time he looked off was when he was paired with the twins. He's gonna be a guy to lean on come this years tourny.

wtf is it with people ragging on booth? He's playing his heart out every shift and getting sh*t done. What do you want from the guy? He's a great guy and you can obviously tell from all the interviews. He's always got a smile on his face in the locker room and you can tell that everybody loves having him around. He skates with speed, and always looks dangerous when he's flying down the wing. He also stands up for teammates when need be and lately he's been throwing his weight around like a translink bus. If everybody shows as much heart as he does game in and game out we'd be on top of the league.

This post is exactly why I watch more Canucks tv,and avoid the forum. What the heck kind of crap thread is this?lol

Why don't you throw the rest of the team under the bus while your at it. Ffs,2 games after injury,and Booth played good tonight.

Disgusting lack of faith thread.

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

Booth is quite a good player, and I am looking forward to him providing a lot of offense this season. I do not see him getting traded any time soon.

This being said he, and some of the other forwards, are candidates to be traded. Because of his $4+ million contract, Booth is a valid target. If he could be moved in a package which returned a younger, cheaper and potentially as talented player, wouldn't you move Booth?

Other forwards could also be moved. For example, Higgins and Raymond will be UFA's next season. While I like both of these guys and I believe they will be usefull to have in the playoffs, if the right circumstances came along I would move them. I would stress that the trade would have to help the team in a way that these guys do not. Perhaps they would be moved to add depth to the center or defense.

I don't see it as wanting them gone as much as assessing what kind of assets could they return here which could help the team in the playoffs.

regards,
G.

What's wrong with Booth? Last year he was just hitting his stride when he got hurt. AV is still easing him in and after 2 games played he looks just fine.
Thank God the Canucks GM is well measured and isn't an impulsive "Quick Draw McGraw".
Personally, I consider Booth to be a yardstick with respect to a possible goaltender trade. He'll be a reliable 20+ goal man who creates space and grief for the opposition with his speed. In other words, he's a keeper. In my opinion, this year, if a goaltender trade represents and uprgrade on Booth, then it is worth the trade. Otherwise, stand pat (given the mature behavior of Lou & Sn).
Do other people think that the Canucks, as they are now, have more to give than they showed against the Hawks? I do.
What is the liklihood of getting a player for Louie or Schneids who has more impact than Booth?
The team who is rolling along at around the 42 - 48 game mark, and in the playoff picture, is the team that looks good for the cup. They won game 16 tonight......so far so good.

He looked a lot better tonight not playing with Ryan. I would like to see him for a few weeks away from Ryan so we can see how he plays when he gets pucks before we trade him. If he is the same old same old then pull the trigger.

Let's give Booth more games. I like his energy and speed, and having him back gives us a ton of depth and lineup combinations. He's also not afraid to drive the net or play physical.

I actually have loved his 2 games since returning. He plays with the competitive nature that you should expect, the kind you see from Hansen and Burrows every shift. His Salary is the problem with the cap coming down next year. But lets give him some time and see what he can do for this team.

Sound reasoning Yete, -1 in 5 games, 4 of which we lost... around 10 months ago... Better trade him now. Right now!

Actually....I think that's the only thing we're missing....

That, and another RH D-man.........but a sniper (25g/year average) is what this team is seriously lacking.

If Henrik gets shut down, it shuts down Daniel, which in turn limits Burrows' production

If Kesler gets shutdown, there isn't much hope for our 2nd line to produce, but if we had one more sniper/ game-breaker on Kesler's line it would make us such a more dangerous team and just a more exciting team in general.

Our PP would be more balanced and maybe even our PK depending on the player we would get
