The flaw with that logic is that if he's not a solution to what you need how good of "deal" he is doesn't matter. Staz is a first line C, who's an exceptional playmaker, faceoff man and good defender who'll chip in 20 goals. His numbers went down for a year, but that's not because his talent disappeared, or he's been exposed, or his age has sapped him of his abilities. Bozak can't cover for our kids because they're aleady both better than him, Staz on the otherhand is still our best center and by a wide margin our best playmaker. So no difference in salary makes up for the fact that Staz is a much better deal for what we need than is Bozak.
