The Vancouver Canucks acquired left wing David Booth, centre Steve Reinprecht and a third round draft pick in 2013 from the Florida Panthers in exchange for Mikael Samuelsson and Marco Sturm.


I feel bad for Samuelsson.

Hmmm interesting trade for sure.

That makes Matthias, Fleischmann, Kopecky and Samuelsson as all ex Wings (in one way or the other) on the Panthers roster. Wow.

I can't help but feel Florida got raped.

Booth alone made that a good trade.
Rough as guts.

Well he left Detroit for Vancouver in part because he wanted a bigger role. Seems like he'll get it in Florida.

I dunno. Samuelsson has been more productive offensively the last two seasons than Booth. On the other hand Booth is 8 years younger.

Booth is one of the biggest idiots in the NHL, dude always gets his bell rung from skating with his head down.

They talked to enough Michigan ex-pats in Florida and were just ahead of the curve (before retirement age).

Too bad. Sammy and the Sedins were a great line. The Homliest Swedes Line was fun.

Seriously, I don't really understand this trade, but I don't follow Florida enough to figure this out.

Good for Booth to finally go somewhere people might appreciate him. Feel bad for Sammy having to go to that AHL club. I thought he was doing great in Vancouver? What happened?

Bure, Jovo, Odelein, Sammy, Sturm.. I follow. :P

Florida likes vets but they need to be a bit more productive.

You guys don't think Booth is just one concussion away from turning into Marc Savard? Six more years on Booth's mega-deal, plus an NTC coming next year IIRC.

IMO, the Canucks are putting an awful lot of eggs into the Chris Higgins basket and I don't know that that has ever worked out for anyone.

Samuelsson is a guy that, for the right price, I wouldn't mind having back with the Wings in case of an injury to the top 6 down the stretch.

Sammy is taking his talents to South Beach. Certainly nicer weather than Vancouver or Detroit.

I hope the ladies there are ready for what they are about to receive. :cool:

Booth played for Flordia which isn't exactly the powerhouse that Canucks are.

A downside I see is Booth's playoff experience. Sammy has some timely goals in the playoffs. With Booth, who knows how he'll produce come playoffs.

Sammy must be crushed. I'm sure he loved playing in Vancouver, a top team in the NHL and with the Sedins and Edler, etc.

What's the possibility of him making a giant fuss, not reporting to the team and the Panthers waiving him?

And in turn, the Wings replacing Brunnstrom with Samuelsson?

The possibility of that is about as great as him actually making it all the way down to the Wings` spot in the waiver order should the above occur, which is somewhere around zero. Besides, he'd owe Florida another year if he failed to report, and he doesn't really seem like the type anyway.
