But Bozak is very solid defensively so he can center the 3rd line and still put up points. Grabovksi does not have that 2-way game in him. Bozak is also a better faceoff guy and good on the PK.
I just don't agree with you. I think Grabovski is the better player and would do very well as a 3rd line center. I do not think they are equal offensively either. Bozak's success seems to have quite a bit to do with Phil Kessel while Grabovski is the catalyst of his line. It would also be an option to convert one of them to a wing and kind of follow the Boston model of have a few centers playing wing that can take faceoffs or play center in case of an emergency. Would it be so bad to have Bozak and Grabovski on the 3rd line if they somehow acquired a #1 center?
