We've pretty much heard his name from all reporter sources, it makes me very nervous. I'm willing to bet that if he comes to Van, in 6 months we'll be adding him to the list of names like Gragnani, Oreskovich, Pahlsson etc etc. I just can't imagine a GM like Gillis would trade his #1 goaltender for a pick, a pending UFA and something else. Clearly, that would Burke robbery.
I can see Bozak potentially being part of a deal, but merely as a warm body. With Kesler still injured and no concrete timetable for his return, this team could use another capable top 9 center, enter Bozak.

That said, no way he's the center piece or even an integral part of any Luongo trade. He's a warm body, that can fill a short term need on a short term contract, nothing more. Names such as Kadri, Kulemin, Frattin, Finn, 1st round pick(not a name I know), will be the integral pieces of any deal.
