The Following is a guest post from our friend @GayCanuck. Gaycanuck is the Canucks correspondent for Puck Buddy's a rapidly growing website dedicated to "Boys who like boys who like hockey" originally based out of Washington D.C.

He also runs one of the best Canucks related twitter accounts around. We're pleased to host his take on the David Booth trade.
