Tyler Bozak has 7 goals this season playing on Toronto's top line. I would assert that Trotter would have banged in quite a few alongside Gionta and Gomez.

Anyway Trotter might not be as good as Bozak, but it's pretty random to complain about something like this, we've got tons of talented players in our pipeline.
Leafs fan coming in peace. I didn't think the Habs played that poorly tonight. Sometimes having too much time between games works against you.

I don't know much about Trotter so I can't really make a comparison to Bozak. Bozak has done extremely well so far, but I just wanted to point out one thing:

Bozak only started playing with the Leafs AFTER the Phaneuf trade. None of these kids played on the Leafs (except for the occasional call-up) until Burke cleaned house. So, although Bozak has only 7 goals, he's only played since February (of which 2 weeks were the Olympic Break).
