David Booth May Hire A Skating Coach

david_booth_2013There was a time when David Booth was a rising star in the NHL, but now hes 29 years old and the owner of an albatross six-year, $25 million contract.

The Vancouver Canucks have only put him in 14 games this season and head coach John Tortorella doesnt use him that much even when hes in the lineup. It has gotten to the point where Canucks GM Mike Gillis bluntly said that Booth needs to play harder.

Ive worked with (a skating coach) in Michigan, but I couldnt do it (last summer, because of injury rehab), Booth told the Vancouver Province. I think I learn well. I havent worked with anyone (locally) yet, were still trying to figure that out.
