He is trying to acquire a forward that can help with the offense without being a defensive liability. The Coyotes are set on the left side. Kessel would be nice, but the 'Yotes couldn't give the Leafs the asking price (which I would imagine someone to play on the top line, preferably center). Lupul (also a UFA at the end of the season) would be given a serious consideration too.
Lupul/Bozak and "not defensive liability" don't really go together well.

EDIT: Don't get me wrong, they can still be effective players, but I don't think a team like Phoenix would target them, as opposed to say, ROR or something.
