Booth a poor mans Samuelsson? I like Samuelsson as much as the next guy, but I can't recall Samuelsson driving to the net.

For the flack Booth gets on here, he's one of maybe two players on our roster than have size and consistently take the puck to the crease.
Gonna have to agree with you there...Booth's play was pretty lackluster, but he was also saddled with a lackluster/injured Kesler. Samuelsson was either very good or very bad with us...he was much more responsible defensively than Booth though. I'm willing to give Booth this season to prove himself before deciding whether or not to cut him loose...I think he's a better bet to rebound than an aging Samuelsson.
