From Steve Gorten: "(Booth's agent Mike) Liut obviously wouldn't say how much they're looking to get per season from the Panthers. But you have to figure it's between $3 million and $4 million and probably closer to the latter. That's how much Nathan Horton is getting per season on a six-year deal and Booth had better numbers this past season." W4E say: I'd be shocked if the completed deal turns out to be a dime under $4.5M. This contract gets done.
