Those first 6 games with Florida kind of skew his stats a bit, ya think?RoyalDude wrote: Booth is on pace for an overwhelming 15 goals 21 assists and 36 points and a minus 6. Fantastic numbers for a 4 point something million hockey player.
With the Canucks, his pace averages to a 25 goal, 57 point season. That's pretty good for a second line guy.
I don't know if you expected him to be a super-star at a discounted price or what. The guy is doing the things expected of him when he was brought in. He's using his speed, he's driving the net, and he's producing.
David Booth, Dustin Penner, Kaberle, Volchenkov, Lupul, Eriksson. Those are your 4.25M players. I dare say Booth isn't the worst on that list...
OK, I get it, the Ditzy Blonde Booth gets the massive mulligan around here just like Ballard. Funny, the Canuck board at Hockeysfuture is having a massive debate over Booth's hockey intelligence or lack thereof I should say, but here, we just run the gamut on drumming up excuses for the guys poor hockey intellect. The bottom line, the numbers don't equate, contract vs output, the same applies to Ballard. Our loss, Florida's gain. The fact that that we only had to give up two aging broke down bums in Samuelsson and Sturm doubled with the fact that the Panthers sweetened the pot by offering us a 3rd round pick tells you what Booth's true value is. He's a waste of money.

He gets a mulligan for his performance in Florida (cus like who cares?), I don't see how anyone could be disappointed with his numbers as a canuck.
Hockey sense doesn't equate talent. A guy like Lucic is a borderline retard. He's still a talented hockey player. Booth is not going to be a Henrik Sedin or Cody Hodgson, but it doesn't mean he's Steve Bernier.RoyalDude wrote:The bottom line, the numbers don't equate, contract vs output, the same applies to Ballard.

Booth is averaging .69 PPG as a Canuck. Hank averages 1.05 this season.
Hank (86 point season pace) gets paid about 71K per point.
Booth (57 point season pace with Canucks) gets paid about 75K per point.
We can all agree that the Sedin's are on two of the better contracts in the league. Wouldn't that put Booth's contract AT LEAST at market value in relation to his production this season?
