Canucks left to wonder: Buy out or bring back Booth?

David Booth insists he's not suffering from the buyout blues and remains confident his National Hockey League career will continue next season, either here with the Vancouver Canucks or somewhere else. A month ago, the suggestion that Booth could in fact be back with the Canucks next season would have been met with laughter. And while it is still probably in the long-shot category...

David Booth Kisses Grizzly Bear, Captions Photo With Taylor Swift Lyrics (Photo)

Vancouver forward David Booth is apparently ready to make nice with bruins — the animal, not the Canucks’ heated rival. The avid outdoorsman drew the ire of animal activists when he posted a picture of a “Chara-sized” bear he killed back in 2012. But now, Booth is making up with the furry creatures, as he posted a picture on Twitter Monday afternoon of him kissing the...

Canucks find success against Wild, 5-2, for third straight win

When David Booth is scoring goals and Alex Edler is preventing them, when Zack Kassian is driving the attack and Brad Richardson leading forwards in ice time, anything seems possible for the Vancouver Canucks. Even a three-game winning streak. An 11-game winning streak to close out the National Hockey League regular season and possibly put the Canucks in the playoffs? Well, let...

Booth bags a gator — and a sweetheart

David Booth has put his 10-day Olympic break to pretty good use. He got engaged to former Miss Tennessee Ashley Durham, he bagged an alligator in a quick Florida bow hunt and he’s doing extra skating with a local coach to be quick off the blocks for the stretch run. Now, if only he could find a few goals to add to that to-do list. First, though, the hunting trip. “It was...

David Booth headed to Utica

Riding the bus On Monday, the Vancouver Canucks announced that oft-injured winger David Booth would be sent to their AHL affiliate, the Utica Comets. While it isn’t a permanent vacation for the overpaid and under-performing winger, one has to wonder if this is really about conditioning, or rather message from the coaching staff and management to David Booth. Making Due The Canucks...

Why keeping David Booth might actually work out for Van City

The Last Great Deal The 2011 acquisition of David Booth by Mike Gillis and the Vancouver Canucks was seen as nothing short of a coup at the time, but in the two years since I have become increasingly undecided on who for. I mean, this seemed so cut and dry at the time. In exchange for a promising power-forward type thing, all Gillis had to give up were two expiring contracts in...

Threat down! The Canucks David Booth…avid hunter?

Why Care about Bears? On A Booth And A Bear… When I was a lot younger, my family rented a cabin up at Saratoga Beach on Vancouver Island every summer. One year, we found some curious nibbles on our cereal boxes and other low-shelved food that I managed to convince my parents was caused by a mouse and not myself. So we walked over to the General Store and bought a bag of mouse traps...
