He's definitely better than Wolski. He many not have the talent, but he has the desire/heart that makes him more valuable to any team than an unmotivated Wolski. He's also a better goal scorer.
producing points on a bad team doesn't necessairly mean that you are a good player. It could mean that you are the guy that is being played the most at PK, PP and ES.
Not trying to discredit Booth at all, and prior to the concussion (they never fully recover) I wouldn't have minded him, but as it is, he's no better than Wolski and not as good as Dubi and since we cannot discount the effects that head injuries have on players and the styles they play post concussion I would not expect Booth to get back to the 60 point days any time soon
