No there isn't a law, but I think it's obvious we could expect Bozak to put up less than 47 points when he's not getting 1st line and 1st PP time with two PPG players.

I guess the point is, why go after a player that 'might' be shelterable if we can insulate him with good two-way wingers, and go after a better player.

Hopefully that's attainable with a top tier goalie.
