Do you think Raymond takes 3m? That's what it would have to be if they intend to still keep Higgins too. 5.5m for both to stay. I dunno. I'm leaning towards them keeping Booth, both for style of play and cost certainty. Who knows what Raymond will ask for after having to swallow a paycut this past year.
While I have come around on Booth, his constant injury status makes him something of a liability to long term planning. If Raymond is willing to take three million or thereabouts, I would advocate re-signing him and looking to move or buyout Booth. Good player but as we have witnessed his season. Injuries are too much of a killer for us.

I wonder though if the Leafs would go for eating $1.5M of Grabs contract.

Do we want Raymond cheap on a NTC ?
I'd do it. NTC being hard to trade is overrated. Most players waive without much issue. In fact, Heatley is the only one who recently made a big fuss about it.
