You're not serious?

Grabovksi is the one guy on the team with a good Corsi rating, he's the exception. He's also played for other coaches and is an experienced player. Bozak broke out under Wilson too if we're giving credit for offensive numbers and forgetting about defence.

Experience matters as much as age. Steen at 21 was coming off 4 years of being a pro, Bozak at 23 was coming out of junior. Who's a more mature player, the 21 year old coming form 4 years of pro or the 23 year old coming out of college?

Production can mean a lot at a younger age but Steen has stayed pretty consistent from 21-28 as far as production goes, it's not like it indicated future potential. Bozak compares well for the first 3 years and at the same age.

Bozak isn't worth this kind of attention and I don't think you even buy these arguments.
