Booth, being paid 4.25mil and not even in the line up...Raymond, completely invisible for past 2 games. Ballard, I agree he should be in top six but doesn't do too well without Tanev. Now, although Salo is injury prone he still provides a great shot and adds depth. Mitchell's ring says hi. Samuelsson logged 13 goals, 15 assist is 48 games in 11-12.
Samuelsson's being paid 3 mil and he's not in the line up either. Booth got 16 goals and 13 assists in 56 games in 11-12. Not much different than Samuelsson and Booth is younger.
Yes, when Salo is healthy he is great depth but you can never guarantee how long he'll stay healthy, and 3.5 per for 2 years is too much of a risk especially at his age.
Mitchell won the cup. Good for him. But what is he doing now? Helping the Kings? No, he's seriously injured. I'd rather have Ballard. At least he's healthy. If only AV would play him.
yea? then what about filling the holes in the team with all those players gone? Can you say MG did well on trade deadline? with Manny,Salo,Hoff,Torres,Samuelsson gone, what did he bring in to replace them? Roy is a rental (unless his brother convinces him, slim chance). Garrison in to replace Salo. Samuelsson for Booth which last time I saw him was on March 16th. Torres, literally slapped MG in the face in game 2. Not to mention Hoff...isn't the best D man, but better than Alberts and Carrado as our 3rd pair in a cup run.
Booth played more than Samuelsson this season and would you really want Erhroff for a decade? Because that's the only way you're getting him without paying upwards of 5 mil and a guy that as you say 'isn't the best D man'.
