    What the hell? We traded our crap for something good.

    Booth will fit in quite sexily.

    Booth scored 23 last year on Florida, and has 30 goals under his belt

    Booth hasn't been the same since the Richards hit. Good move, though

    I love our 2nd AHL team. Always there for us when we need an upgrade.

    Already used that one.

    Anyways, Tallon's a ****ing idiot. I'll agree with you on that.

    Luongo for Auld + 2nd + Bertuzzi. What?
    They probably beat you in that Ballard trade, but what do they do? Waive Grabner.

    Then this one. Any other deals?

    Its messed up how often we trade with Florida. Luongo, Ballard, Higgins, Booth. 4 different trades in like 5 years. I feel like I am missing another deal maybe.

    Where does this leave Cody? Hansen-Hodgson-Manny?

    If you have a top line of Daniel Sedin - Henrik Sedin - Alex Burrows

    then a second line of Rotate - Cody Hodgson - Ryan Kesler

    and you aquire a LW, odds are Booth's going to jump on that line with the two of them.

    Alain V loves Higgins on that 2nd line. He basically said Booth/Kesler/Higgins will be the 2nd line. That leaves Cody in a bind. He's not a 3rd line player. He doesn't have anything to prove in the AHL.

    And I doubt Vancouver would want to bring in another top six forward either. You're fine on defense for now, and you obviously don't need another goaltender. I'd run this for a game or so..

    Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
    Booth - Hodgson - Kesler
    Higgins - Malhotra/Max - Hansen

    That's what every vancouver van would love to see.

    Here's Botchford's take on this situation:

    No reason for Cody hodgson to go anywhere. He can take ebb's spot on 3rd line. Maybe even malhotra's. Along w chances to return to 2nd line

    Personally, I'd like to see, at some point, booth-hodgson-kesler but that has no chance of happening

    I'll have to wait and see how he plays. It's a full-on ******** move if it drops Cody off the second line.

    Hopefully it will be Booth-Kesler-Hodgson. And hopefully Booth is enough of an upgrade over Higgins that it was worthwhile.

    Don't mind losing the two players we lost, though Samuelsson gave this organization a ton of experience and leadership when he was in his prime just a few short years ago. Good luck to him, and thanks!
