The Canucks are in serious cap trouble and Booth is one player that could become a casualty.  Much like Hemsky, health has derailed his value, as 3 of the last 4 seasons have seen him spend significant time outside the lineup.  He has 2 years remaining with a cap hit of $4.25M but slightly higher salary due.  Vancouver would likely want picks and/or prospects in return.

This would be a bigger risk because you are on the hook for 2 seasons, and his health is very concerning.
