Remember when The Canadiens were going to sit Gomez all year just to make sure he wouldn't get hurt which might stop them from be able to buy him out.

The NHL and NHLPA ended up letting him be bought out immediately in order to have the chance to play elsewhere but I don't think the amnesty buyout rules have changed. If Booth is still hurt in July then I don't believe the Canucks are allowed to use one of their amensty buyouts on him. He still has 2 years left after this season at $4.25Million cap hit per and he has to be the leading candidates to be one of the two buyouts.

I pray he is better by July.

He got paid $4.5 Million this year and probably will finish with 1 empty net goal. How the hell could the Canucks justify bringing him back at that cap hit for 2 more years if they can get out of it?

He tries hard, and seems like a good guy, but he just doesn't seem to fit here. It seems like he's either in a slump or hurt.

If he got paid around $2.5 million it might be worth the risk to keep him. However at $4.5 million and plus the salary cap is going down, he has to go.

David Booth is exactly what this team needs, MG will never trade or buy him out. He's a big strong power forward, basically the only Canuck apart from Kassian who's willing to take the puck hard to the net. He can hit, he's fast and he's capable of scoring 30 goals. That combination is a rare one.

Why do you think everyone want's big, skilled forwards? Why do you think MG drafted Gaunce and Jensen? Why do you think Boston and L.A won the Cup? Because of big, fast hitting forwards who can score.

Apart from Booth, we're very thin in that department. Burrows doesn't know how to deliver a big hit. Kesler hasn't knocked a guy flat in a while. All we really have are Higgins and Kassian in that area.

Players like Booth win Cups. His poor regular season play gets a pass because he had no training camp and just a handful of games to get into mid-season form. Hopefully he can come back with a couple of weeks before the playoffs, because that's where players like Booth shine.

Amnesty buyout?

Can't we just put him on Injured Reserve for the rest of his career?

It's a good question. Amazing how highly rated some fans still consider him to be.

I sure hope this seemingly serious injury doesn't affect his hunting season/schedule. Could really mess up his spring plans.

Booth will be fine. He's going through the Raymond/Bieksa treatment right now. Keeps getting injured and fans expect his top game ASAP.. Give him some time to rebound and get up to season's form. Before last night, he was finally clicking with Kassian and was really working hard in the offensive zone to create chances and wear down the opposition defence.

Buy outs are only a last resort for guys like Gomez who no one will touch with a 10 foot pole.

But of course CDC wants to buy out anyone. Funny though, you don't see too many other GM's buying out contracts other than Gomez & Redden.

there is no guarantee that he will turn around the game in playoffs...you are forgetting that booth is injury prone and sure he can hit people but sometime once in a while you need to score with that kind of a contract.

im not sure that Booth can turn it around offensivley, and his ability without production does not justify his salary and cap hit, HOWEVER thats not to say that he still cant be a valuable piece to the team or any other team as he throws bigger hits than most of our forwards and has shown good ability to take the puck to the net with solid battling effort.... just kind of a cap issue with him.

i dont think he'll be bought out. if anyone, itll be ballard. cant be paying a fringe roster player that kind of money. and though ive shyed away from the idea of booth scoring like a top 6 forward, i still think he is an effective 3rd line player, who could be made better with the right kind of center. i wish him ggod luck with short recovery, but am hoping in his absence that we get a peek at what jensen can do at this level.

I agree 100%. That guy can't catch a break this year. He has been in and out of the line up, and even when he was in, most of the time didn't have Kesler or any skilled centres to play with.

Let him be.

The reason for this is that the amnesty buyouts were initially scheduled to begin at the end of this season. A special case was made for Gomez and Redden as they would not have played any hockey this year which would have hurt their chances of gainful employment after that.

We'll have to wait until the off-season to see what kind of buyouts will happen.

Kesler was lucky to score 20 this year since the injury to Morrison allowed him to do so.

I doubt Kesler would ever break 15 goals in his career again.

Only part of the truth is stated. He's missed a lot of time this year because of injury. He's looked great of late and last night was bad luck.

You make a good point, although this is part of the problem as well, imo. I like Booth and what he can potentially bring to the team but he has already missed 32 games to injuries since being acquired.

That being said, I don't think a buyout is warranted for Booth as he can be effective when playing and frees up some cap space if he's on IR.

You're right. If he gets a few bounces to go his way, Booth could score 30 goals over the remainder of his career.

I'm pretty sure our 2 Amnesty buyouts last until the 2014 summer, I may be wrong but there is not a chance if healthy of David booth staying here. He will be gone and good riddance . Another MG mistake...at least we didn't pay a huge premium like with Ballard.
