Bozak is a playmaker first and foremost, while Kadri much like Grabovski is a dangler that tries to beat people one on and stick-handle through the opposition, and better finishers themselves.
So you need a center that distributes the puck well, to play with Kessel and Lupul and at present that makes Bozak best suited for the position..
Kardi would be more suited to replace Grabovski as they're similar in style of play, and assume a 2nd line role.
Personally I'd like to see Kadri on the wing being centered by Joe Colborne and flanked by Matt Frattin on Leafs 3rd "kids" line when the season starts up again.
Signature: There is no greater demonstration of Fan patience then to suggest to "Play the Kids " and be willing to accept the consequences of those actions..
