Apparently David Booth injured his groin doing the physicals during testing. #canucks

Gotta be kidding me. I wonder if he actually was skating 4-5 times per week like he said to AV. For how long? 3 minutes? Just too many holes. If he want to stay competiive, we're going to need both goalies standing on their heads and play as defensively as we can. Trading Lu for one good scorer would only fill in one spot when we're down 2 2nd liners. Booo.

We need Scott Gomez. The Chosen One.

He did mention he had time to do other things he enjoyed a lot more too.

Don't worry, Schneider will take the fall. It's the Vancouver way.

I'm starting to stress out here. Kesler and Booth gone for as long as they are, are big blows especially since so many games are going to be played in a 4-6 week span. Our start to the season is going to dictate if we make the playoffs IMO.

For me, Lu and Schneider standing on their heads is the only way we can make it through this storm. If we trade Lu now, I think it means we're pretty much throwing away this season. Too many offensive holes right now even after we trade lu. Kesler has been off for so long that we have no idea how he will even play when he's healthy. I remember him saying before his 40 goal season how he had practiced shooting so many pucks that summer. Shooting doesn't come naturally to kes. He needs to practice it a lot. I sure hope he hasn't lost some of his shooting touch. Maybe trade Lu at the trade deadline if our players are healthy again? I guess it depends on what is coming back for lu too though. But then the excuses would be that the new players needed a training camp to fully mesh with the team. tough position to be in.

Now that I think about it, I think it would be better for the Canucks to hold on to Luongo until Kesler is back. We need to see how well Kesler can play. If he can't play as well as before, then we're going to need to assess that position. Maybe Weiss?

So you're saying dot trade Luongo for offensive help because t would be pointless at this point in time? If we can fill a spot to help us score more, we do it. I don't see why we'd hold off upgrading on Schroeder/Ebbett up front if we had the chance.

Because shipping Luongo means Schneider + Lack as our tandem. Not exactly bad, but Schneids never carried a starter's load and Lack hasn't had NHL time. Unless we pick up a good veteran at the bargain bin but I'm not sure who would be available.

Didn't lack just have surgery? Hasn't even his agent said that he isn't ready for the nhl this season?

Right now, whatever we do leaves holes somewhere on the roster. We're going to need a lot of puck luck and pray Raymond, Schroeder, Ebbett or whoever can step up. Also, pretty sure Lack isn't even an option to be a backup right now.

I'm not as concerned with losing a winger. I do feel that the likes of Higgins, Raymond, Kassian and Hansen can fill in well enough.

However, now it really hurts not having a proven second line center.

Apparently AV said he might have overtrained, so I doubt that's the case.

AV says fitness, or lack thereof, was not an issue with Booth. Says Booth may have over-trained. #Canucks

Everyone knew from his Florida days that Booth was a fitness freak. They had to tell him to tone it down when he got to Vancouver last season. This lockout was bad because the team had no control over what he did and he probably went overboard again.

The speculation that he lied about his fitness or skating is just... He's probably in best condition of all our guys.

me too. I thought i remember thinking that booth was a fitness nut when he came hear and they said that was part of the reason why he wasn't doing well during games because he was expending too much energy during training/weight lifting.

I just felt like ripping on him because I'm a schmuck.

Fan590 in Toronto gave me a wtf moment. In their news roundup they said something along the lines of:
"The NHL and NHLPA have agreed to allow amnesty buyouts this year for players earning more than 3M, but it has to be done before Saturday, and David Booth is gone from Vancouver...for 4-6 weeks with a groin injury sustained during his physical."

Seriously, the "...", that's where the pause was. Blew my mind for a second.
