Bozak was always the first guy back, dug the puck out of his own end and played a good transition game to allow Lupul and Kessel to score a vast majority of their points off the rush.

Kadri doesn't look a guy who can play that role as his talent is very much centered around controlling the puck in the offensive zone. Throwing him in entirely changes the dynamic of how the line works, so it's not nearly as simple as saying the Naz has more skill, therefor the line will be better offensively.
