do the Canucks end the David Booth experiment?
I've got to believe that his presence would start to be more of a hindrance than a benefit at this point,especially when you hear stories of him being bag-skated at practices for lack of effort.
If the Canucks were to make him a healthy scratch when he returns that would still leave the club with Daniel,Burr,
Higgy,Sestito and Pelletier on L wing.
Does Boothy go bye bye?

I think the aquamen are just gonna have to eat this one!!

I was thinking alone these lines as well.......like a David Booth for a John Michael Liles type deal.

Contracts a poor team would like to get rid of for an overpaid roster player who might work in their top 6.
We then flush Clemmensen/Whitney/Gomez for cap relief and eventually trade for Vanek at the deadline.
(first $925K of each salary wouldn't count against the cap)
Okay this probably won't work as the 3 players above are UFAs this summer.
But something along those lines?
