So instead of looking at depleting our roster depth and prospects depth, why not go after someone that would perhaps fit the role better as a "shut down" center, one that's big and can grind well.
His value is low, thus the value may be worth it.
Makes a lot more sense than the usual third line winger proposals.
Not sold that the JVR/Kessel line needs a big C.
What it needs IMO is a player that has the skill and hockey IQ to compliment that line.
Frankly, i don't think Boz has either quality.
