fyp.... Too bad he got hurt. Would have liked to seen him bought out as well.
How soon we forget that he scored 15G in 51 games two years ago with the Canucks. If that's the kind of production we get, that's worth 4.2m on the open market easily.
I also have a sneaking suspicion that we might want to keep that second buyout slot open for Burrows.
I guess I'm just not a fan of the guy. Certain things he does like using his speed, driving the net, going to the dirty areas and playing somewhat physical are all a plus. His tunnel vision, lack of defensive awareness and incosistency are definite minuses. He is a player with a few warts for sure and he can't seem to stay healthy which is the biggest red flag for myself. He has had three major injuries in less than two seasons with Vancouver, not to mention he has concussion issues in his past.
I'm not sure if he would sign here but if it was my money I would much rather have Brenden Morrow at 4.2 million than David Booth. I'm sure I could find a couple of more players on the open market that could be a better fit for this team than Booth.
