DAVID BOOTH RUMORS & GOSSIP
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...
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...
This love is difficult but it's real.
Don't be afraid, we'll make it out of this mess.

Vancouver Canucks forward David Booth uploaded this photo of him kissing a bear on Monday afternoon, and I’m really not sure how or why it happened. But it came with a deep caption about love...
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...
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- David Booth scored two unassisted goals and Eddie Lack made 29 saves to lead the Vancouver Canucks over the Minnesota Wild 5-2 on Wednesday night.
Zack Kassian, Daniel Sedin and Ryan Kesler also scored for Vancouver as the Canucks try to make a late push to overtake Phoenix and Dallas for the Western Conference's final wild-card playoff spot.
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.
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.
Canucks forward David Booth isn't ready to hit the ice yet at training camp.
The 28-year-old Vancouver veteran is still sidelined by an ankle injury sustained last season, and Canucks general manager Mike Gillis says Wednesday that Booth hasn't been cleared to play.
Booth is one of the Canucks' highest-paid players at $4.2 million per season. He was limited to 12 games...

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...

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...
