Good assessment. Would add that Booth also has a concussion history. Assuming that he stays healthy, he will be a 20-30 goal scorer depending on how much PP time he gets.

well, in my opinion, and in terms of production at the nhl level (i.e., objective measures), that's simply not the case.

basically what i've always said. in fairness to booth, he's always been pushed to be the guy, to shoot a lot and carry the offensive load with weiss and horton. it'll be interesting to see how he adjusts to a more diverse offensive attack. if history is any lesson, we ought to know he can improve in an area he focuses on and there's no real mystery to developing better hands and now with usahockey's new tool, he can work on his vision and hockey sense as well
