Wilson is better than O'Brien yes but Bozak is better than Connolly and fits what I would imagine the Avs being happy with as a third line center.

For all the fun that we make of Bozak I could totally see the Avs going after him as a UFA to fill the third line role if we traded one of our centers anyways.

Personally I like the Kulikov idea better but I don't really see a center FLA would part with in the same type of deal.
Gardiner and Bozak for O'Reilly and Wilson still seems pretty fair to me. I think Toronto would push to add Connolly instead of Bozak because it would balance the salaries out better once O'Reilly signs. The base of the proposal is Gardiner for O'Reilly and I think that's a pretty good place to start.
