A top 6 forward by technical defn, is someone who contributes 40+ points per yr (35+ points for a very low end top 6er). Booth had 30 pts last yr, making him a 3rd liner last yr. If he played a full 82, he'd likely be in the top 6 forward category. (Note: Higgins was a few pts away from being considered a 1st line player. He's def not a tweener).

I'm not a fan of Booth, but he's a good stop gap till Kassian/Jensen are top 6 ready. If the Canucks can get a good young centre ++ in a Luongo trade, I'm comfortable with the top 6.
