Sound logic my ass.
The entire league could have had this 25 goal "power forward" in the off-season for nothing. When UFA season started why couldn't the Panthers turf him for nothing when teams had cap space? The Panthers settled on less than nothing (a contract of Samuellson who was hurt and threw in a 3rd rounder to boot). 28 GM's passed on Booth for a reason.
