Really liked Bozak’s game tonight. I know there are not a lot of Bozak fans but he is worth over 4 million dollars in this market with the cap going up. No question our 1st line is better when he plays. He is not ideal in the 1st line Centre spot if we are going to contend but he is a very good 3rd line centre in this league. Like it or not but 4 mil is going to be the going rate for that position very soon.
He is our best faceoff man, and definitely our best penalty killer. I remember Bolland saying earlier in the year that he thinks Bozak is top 15 centres in the league. While I don’t agree it is clear he is highly regarded by his teammates as well as his coach with the minutes he plays under Carlyle.]]>
Three years younger than Liles is also a plus. The concussion might be a concern for this year, but hopefully is 100% in the near future. Even Crosby took a while to get back to 100%.]]>
