Booth is a very limited player, but he can still be effective as a net presence and bull in the corners if he's utilized properly. Basically he's a complimentary offensive player, not someone who drives the offense himself...if he doesn't fit with Kesler on the 2nd line, for whatever reason, he should be gone after this season...but he's pretty much the best bet we have right now...unless Kassian renders him expendable, but I think thats a year away.
Kassian would actually be the ideal compliment to Kesler and Booth. Pass first, great IQ, can work the cycle well, can keep up with the skating and of course has size. Here's to hoping he can improve his consistency so that our 2nd line will be a threat to score every time.
