If we sign Getzlaf or a number one centre this offseason then Grabovski is expendable since Bozak can play 2nd line. Kadri might be ready for that position also (as he's versatile for centre and wing position).
Getzlaf doesnt make Grabo expendable. What it does is give us a legit number one, a legit #2 in Grabo, and lets Bozak play third line where he belongs. I like Bozak, and im in favour of keeping him, but he is not a top 6 forward. Hes a third liner with the ability to keep up with Phil Kessel, and for that reason he should be kept around in case of an injury situation.
Teams win with strength down the middle. Moving Grabo isnt what we need to do.
