Here is the hit that almost ended Booth's hockey career Oct 24, 2009:



Here is Booth seeking a little payback against Richards on March 3, 2010:



Here is Booth getting rocked by a somewhat harmless hit by Jaroslav Spacek on March 25, 2010 (ending his season):



...apparently, he came back too soon.

The whole thing looked very emotionless and obligatory, especially from Richards' side. Lame.

^^^ I'd be really curious to see how Shanahan would respond to Spacek's hit on Booth there. I think its a relatively clean hit as it was a shoulder check, though to the head, while Booth was skating with his head down. Its not really a blind-sided check as JS was simply closing the gap, but it looked heavy to say the least.

Tough call, but I don't think I have a problem with that one.

On a side note, maybe it's good that Booth isn't a formidable set-up man, as we don't need to see anymore Rome-Horton like hits whilst admiring a pass. :P

What the heck is a players Corsi and what does his PDO stand for. I don't care the measurement I want to know what the letters P D O stand for and if Corsi is short for something. An easy explanation for an old guy would be appreciated.

Personally, I hope any Canuck in Rome's position makes that hit again. Late or not, it's the Finals and you have to take the body. Horton bears 85% of the responsibility for his concussion on that one...

Nobody is going to confuse Booth with Lucic... but he's got wheels and offensive instincts, is a big body and adds a dimension we lack at the top half of our roster. Adding him gives us some great options when Raymond retunrs too...

Sedins-Burr
Higgins-Kes-Booth
Raymond-Coho-Hansen
Lapierre-Manny-Weise-Volpatti-Pinno

I'd still like to see some more grit that can play 3rd line minutes... but that's an easier upgrade to make later in the season in the lead-up to the playoff drive.

Rick freaking Nash isn't available!

David Booth was.
After watching Rick Nash's attempt at checking Jamie Benn, I wouldn't want him even if he was available for the same price as Booth.

I hope you're just exaggerating here to make a point. Nash has 50-goal-season level skills. He could take a nap on the ice in the defensive zone every night and be worth well over 4.2 million a season.

Fortunately Secord has retired.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Half exaggerating?

Your team ain't going to win much when your top guy makes a boatload of money and doesn't even try to play a lick of defense. Not very good for team cohesiveness is it?

The TAFY! line. I know the media hangs around the forums to steal our stories and ideas... so run with it boys.
