Secondly im not sure why Bozak gets such a bad wrap... hes a versatile player that plays in all situations on all lines. If i was a GM i'd love to have a player like him. I see comparisons to ROR if i may say so myself. Obviously ROR is younger... and had one better season but Bozak isnt very far behind.

Keeping in mind both entered the league in the same year. Both players played on the top lines of their teams last season. Yes ROR is better defensively, but i know Bozak gets a bad wrap simply by being a leaf.

Bozak is an above average third line player, and his points are inflated because Kessel . Every Leaf fan puts him in all their proposals signaling they know his value is inflated because of Kessel. Also ROR started on the third line but with Winnik and Landy they moved up to the first line. ROR didn't get that spot by default.
