Anyone take the over in the Cleveland-Seattle game? If you did, here's something that will cheer you up: the Monday morning musings and meditations on the world of sports.

¦ Before the parade committee calls a meeting, it should be noted that the acquisition of David Booth comes with a considerable risk. In Booth, the Canucks have taken on a $4.25-million cap hit through the 2014-2015 season for a player who was deemed expendable by, ahem, the Florida Panthers. The Canucks have a similar amount of money tied up in another ex-Panther, defenceman Keith Ballard, for the same term and the jury is still out on Ballard.
