[A lonely newcomer sits in his hotel room, shaken by how his life has suddenly and drastically changed]

David Booth: My whole life is turned upside down! I mean, Florida may not have had the strongest fan base, or the most success in their history, but I played there for 5 years. It was home. And South Beach! I'm going to miss South Beach. And now I am about as far from Miami as I could possibly get.

[knock on door]



Sedins: Hello new player, we are here to welcome you to the Canucks.

Booth: Oh boy! I'm so glad to see you! I was feeling pretty down on myself. Reinprecht Is down at the bar already and said he loves getting traded, because he gets a frequent mover discount with Atlas Van Lines, but he gets traded all the time. This is my first trade, though -- well, not if you include when my draft rights were traded, but it didn't mean I had to move, so I don't include that. You can though. Do whatever you want though, I don't want to step on any toes. Gosh, I'm so nervous and excited and scared and... and ... and 
[sighs]

Sedins: You are talking very much new player. We were told we could come up to see new booth. It can seat both Sedins. We are very excited.

Booth:  Oh, haha! You jokesters! I'm Booth. David Booth! Say, do you always talk at the same time like that?

[Sedins enter and start pulling at Booth's arms]

Booth: What are you doing?

Henrik: How do you work?

Daniel: Do you fold out or something?

Booth: I think you guys are taking this joke a bit too far.

Henrik: Quiet

Daniel: We don't like talking furniture
