The rumours have been circulating for two seasons and now it appears the Vancouver Canucks are finally cutting their ties with forward David Booth.
The Canucks placed Booth on conditional waivers on Tuesday for the purpose of a buyout. David Booth has one year left on his contract at a $4.25 million cap hit which the Canucks management feel could be better spent elsewhere.
After a very poor start Booth finished with nine goals and 10 assists in 66 games this past season.
Booth never seemed to fit in to the Canucks plans. Booth worked hard and had a lot of bad luck with injuries and just never got on a roll. I understand the thought process behind the buyout but I wonder if Booth was finally ready to bust loose.
Hard to say. Good luck Booth on the next chapter of your NHL Career. We wish you the best and thank you for the efforts you gave us. I only wish things could have been better for everyone!
