Ok, we're at the point in the season where we need an electron microscope to see how fine the splits in the hair are getting.

If someone wants to start a thread on "team toughness" and work to define "toughness" and THEN start a debate, go for it.

This thread was bought back to life to discuss the effectiveness of David Booth, and his place on the Canucks. :?

LMAO...The arrogant, pompous Cockney Limey Bastard Doc don't care if you are new or old, his middle name is 'Condescending'. It's the English Anglo Saxon way, everyone else is below them...it's just how it is with the Cockney bastards, it's the sort of stuff they teach at the Protestant congregation of all protestant congregations, Westminster Abbey, where Prince Charles carries on with his pedophilia ways when not wishing he was Camilla Bowles tampon.

I think Booth needs more time to show his worth to the Canucks. The problem with Booth is that he had no playoff experience and came to a team expected to contend for the Cup. A lot of players suck in their first playoff series and Booth was one of them.

I think Booth was acquired in part due to his contract. On the surface, picking up a contract with 3 more years (after the 11-12 season) at a $4.25M might appear to be a big risk, but Booth is a 20 goal 40 point guy who has scored over 30 goals before. Given the way the cap has risen, I think Gillis might have bet on Booth's contract turning into a decent one. Personally, I see Booth as an asset that Gillis can package in a trade, but for now Booth gives the team a legitimate top 6 player to play with Kesler.

I think it's going to be real interesting to see how many guys Gillis signs to an extension. There's about 6-7 roster players up front who are going to be UFAs next summer.

In the end, discussions will get heated, opinions will be debated ad nauseum and all we're asking is that a civil tone is used. What might be ok between you and someone else, might not be ok with the dozens of other posters that read it.


Really ???

It was all good but you had to lob another fart on the fire.

That would be nice, put the Jesus feet away for the summer and leave the walking on water to others better suited.

Back on topic: I'm predicting 27 goals for David Booth (without #1 PP time = damn fine!).

Anyone else got any predictions? :mex:

Agreed.

Of the seven, I think most folks don't give a flying fuck about Volpatti & Ebbet. And if they do THEY SHOULDN’T. Most prolly figure Raymond & Manny will be gone in one year if not sooner... and most prolly feel the sooner the better. Burrows will be signed (just over $4mil per?). Lappy will be offered something fair ($1.6mil?) - if he says no, let him walk, no biggie. Likewise Higgins (something fair = close to $3mil??).

Are you suggesting that Cocco Canuck's post was appropriate and you have a problem with my suggestion for him to review the board's guidelines?
