His EV productivity was also hurt by an abnormally low EV SH%. Even if you think Booth is generating lower quality chances than average, it's still very unlikely that he's generating chances that are 25-30% worse in quality than an average NHLer.
That's exactly it, 160th at EV puts Booth in the below average 2nd line forward category.

Now how many forwards in the NHL come with a bigger cap hit? You would have to think much less than 160...
