Matt Stajan proved adequate as a play-making centre last season, leading the Leafs in assists with 40 [Savard had 63 with the Bruins]. But, that number likely represents the high end for Stajan, whose durability is more impressive than his offensive skill. Mikhail Grabovski showed he can be a dynamic talent, but he doesn’t have the patience and calmness required to abet a speedy winger. John Mitchell’s numbers improved with added responsibility toward the end of the season,
but no person will credibly speak of Mitchell and Savard in the same sentence.
Tyler Bozak is reputed by many scouts to possess the ice vision and composure that may ultimately mesh with a scoring line-mate, but he is a complete unknown at the NHL level.
Berger unintentionally admitted his lack of credibility in his profession...
