Lets hope he can stay healthy.

Then lets hope he can start contributing based upon his cap hit.

they've recalled him too soon. Should have left him in Utica for the full 2 weeks

I agree. Archie deserved another game or two.

Archibald played a steady fourth liner's game but showed that his skating really does need work. He was too slow at getting to too many puck battles. If Booth is ready he'll bring far more to the line up than Archibald.

What surprised/dismayed/disappointed me most about Archibald's stint was his inability to find someone willing to fight.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Recalling him now gives him two full practice days before Thursdays game. Seeing where he fits and how the lines will look is important any time if the years I I think it is smart to get him back now.

Yeah, I agree bringing Booth back now is the right call. The upcoming home stand is big for the Canucks, who will need all hands on deck.

Archibald is a step too slow right now. His hits were all late and he never seemed to be first into the corners. I was also looking forward to seeing him scrap. That being said, there are some positives that came out of his first few NHL games. If nothing else, he is able to put some pressure on Sestito and Weise to play well or get the hell out of the way.

Plus Torts didn't like how the team played vs LA and the Ducks so he probably felt the team needed a bit of change on the roster.

iirc Booth and Kassian played half decent on the same line before.

In eight games with the Canucks, I thought Archibald acquitted himself quite well.

Yeah, except David Booth likely subscribes to the scripture "Vengeance is mine saith the Lord".

After a trip to Utica however it is also likely he comes back and plays "like a man possessed". Image

Yeah, I guess the timing is right..hopefully he's got it together cause I don't think Torts will watch him flounder very long before he staples his ass to the bench

In fairness to Booth Torts has to give him a shot. Not just one game and out. Maybe it's time to put Burrows back with the twins and re-unite the Amex line. Put Kassian with Santorelli and hell if I know. Drop Richardson back to the 4th line with fuck if I know.

Hmm.. it's obvious the canucks want Boothy to succeed. They should just put him with the sedins for a few games and give him a golden chance to see what he can do.
