I was just about to post this. I don't know how I feel about Booth, I think I want him to be the player he was but I think he is burned out. I don't know if he could ever return to anything close to what he was before to be honest. A cheap 1 year 1M contract wouldn't be bad, but where would he fit? He's not a first liner anymore, and our bottom-6 is all filled. I wish he could go back to his form, but that's just like saying I want Marc Savard to come back.

Better than Flash? I don't think so. His best days are done unfortunately and I don't think he would bring much to the team.

It's just frustrating, I'd rather get old panthers back than Dave Bolland honestly. There are faster skaters playing at the rink in Coral Springs FL, they would come a lot cheaper than bolland. I would take a gamble on : booth, heatley, hell I will even go Mueller or Leino. This team isn't going to be good, and I'm a STH, so I don't mind being truthful. I feel bad for luongo, he's basically just finishing off his career with an average joe team. Lost out on Vrbata, I mean Tallon did not have a good start to free agency that's for sure

While I strongly agree that Dave Bolland's contract is atrocious, he still is a pretty good 3rd line center that brings veteran play to this team. Whether it be at 5.5 or 2.5, he will still be a 30-45 point guy for us. I disagree with getting Heatley, Booth, and Leino. Who knows if Leino would even score a goal for us, and Heatley has regressed so much that he's probably done, and like I said about Booth. Mueller is the only guy I actually liked that might have a little gas left in the tank, but once again not really a top-6 guy that doesnt fit on this team. Vrbata would've been a good signing, I've wanted him more than anyone else this free agency but we lose some we win some. Hopefully we will make a few trades and make a few more acquisitions. I think Tallon did decent this free agency, aside from Bolland we have add many veteran players to accentuate our youth.

This thread is full of ridiculous. Rather Booth than Bolland?

Bolland got overpaid. That doesn't mean he is terrible. David Booth is terrible.

Love the guy, but be real here. He's not NHL material.

I know someone that knows Booth.

If he had his way, he'd sign here. But Tallon isn't a fan. he won't be back.

my opinion: He's just not the same player he used to be, and if he's not scoring 20+ goals, he's pretty useless.

Pass.

We signed Bolland so now let's bring in Booth? Better than Flash? No. To all of it.

If we didn't already have a team full of bottom 6 wingers, it might be an option.

Just...no.... So we arguably gave him 1.5 mil/year more than he deserves.... big f...ing deal... He is only 28 so I don't have a big issue with the length of the contract. He is a good 3C when healthy, that's the only question mark on my book. And how short is your memory... Flash while horrible last year was arguably our best players the 2 years prior to that... stop with the Booth is better than Flash comment... that is just atrocious.

Let's bring back Santorelli too. Put Booth and Santorelli back on the same line so they can teach every kid how not to play defense again.

He's just not as good as he was with us. Which is kinda disappointing.

I loved the player Booth "was" but due to the famous hit, his career hasn't been the same. If that hadn't happened, he might have possibly still been a part of this team's future. Who knows. I would rather just move forward than getting guys back from the past. I don't think he'd fit in well now with the roster we have.

I honestly think the Spacek hit messed him up more than the Richards hit.

We need a top 6 winger. Booth doesn't fit into that category.

Got plenty of bottom 6 wingers.
