There is no point discussing whether Bozak is an optimal #1C or not. Noone in their right mind would claim him to be. Grabo being able to fill a #1C role (the premise of this thread), or even being a great option for #2C, however, is debatable.
As I said earlier there is a history of not only a top line but the BEST line in the NHL having a sub-par Center.

So in that light I think Grabo could somewhat provide what a Morrison or Rucchin would be expected to bring. I think the extra goals he would give up would be ballanced by the added offence, (Just going by him having more pure offensive talent and being put in thesame position.).

Then again is Kessel-Lupul equal to Selanne-Kariya or Bertuzzi-Naslund?

I don't think so but the way they were scoring it sure brought back memories.

SImply put: If the linemates were good enough Grabo could be a decent #1 center in the NHL. Along the lines of Morrison and Rucchin, but with a bit more offense and a bit less defense..
