How is Bozak equal to Grabo offensively? He put up less numbers while playing with PPG wingers last year... Add up Kulemin + MacArthurs point totals from last year and its less pts than Kessel had alone, let alone adding in Lupul as a linemate...

Defensively, Grabo is underrated, though I'd still give Bozak the edge.

Personally I don't think Bozak is a top 6 C on a good team. I think he should be groomed as the 3rd line C. Defensively responsble + some offensive abilities.

Realistically the choice should be between keeping Grabo or Kadri for the 2nd line C spot. I'd say Kadri, simply because he's younger/cheaper/higher upside.
