I know there's a major discrepancy in production statswise, but I think Booth is being mis-used out in Vancouver.

Kesler is a low-IQ offensive player, and when combined with Booth (also low-IQ), they don't produce much together.

Booth is at his best when with one of those high-IQ C's (Weiss in FLA) - he'd look really good as RNH/Gagner's LW. He's younger, cheaper (4.25M), and bigger than Hemsky - and I'm not willing to write him off just yet. He's put up 30+ goals in the league before. Our line-up heading into next season would read:

Hall-Gagner (4-5M)-Yakupov
If you could add a guy with some spunk to that 3rd line (Dupuis, Lapierre) and play them 18-19 min/night to win the match-up game, you got a pretty good line-up there.
Booth is done as an effective NHLer.
