[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.

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.

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

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
