The same situation will happen with Kadri, his ELC is done after this season.

If he is acquired and doesn't earn a permanent roster spot next fall, he will be lost to waivers.

Plain and simple is horrendous asset management to acquire Bozak (UFA rental) and Kadri (unlikely to make the roster this season or next) and a 2nd round pick.

Would rather have depth in goal.
Good summary.

RE: Bozak, even if he wasn't a rental, when did this perception that Tyler Bozak actually has trade value start? His stats are entirely a product of being force-fed ice time on a team with little depth at center, and he is no stud defensively. Where does he fit on a contender? I just don't see it.
