Do you mean his pace? Booth has only broken 40 points once in 6 years...

I view Booth as a half point per game player with a below average defensive game. He's essentially our David Jones/Clarke MacArthur - an average 2nd line forward that doesn't check very well and will find himself often bouncing between the 2nd and 3rd lines.

The problem I have with corsi is that each player only represents roughly 10% of what happens on the ice. I would assume players numbers swing wildly from season to season. Is that accurate?
