Booth Close To Returning

from Steve Gorten of the Sun-Sentinel,

DeBoer and Booth talked for a while near the bench today and then Booth chatted with Dave Zenobi. DeBoer said it was nothing more than just another daily conversation on Booth’s progress.

I spoke with Booth this afternoon. I got the feeling he’s going to be back one of the next three games after tonight—either Sunday against the Islanders, Monday against the Ducks or next Friday against the Flames. All three are home games. My guess would be Friday.

I asked Booth if he was ready to play. He said he’s getting closer, but isn’t quite there yet.

“If I felt ready to play in a game right now I’d be playing tonight,” Booth said. “I don’t know when that date is going to be. I just don’t want to put my team in jepoardy of anything where I’m not ready. Every shift now counts. If you make a mistake and the other team capitalizes, it’s tough to live as a player.”
