Yep, as we know, it is not as easy playing with Kessel as is widely believed here. This usually means you are facing the top defensive pairing on a nightly basis.

Many have been tried, and Bozak has been the best C to date for this line. If Bozak is hurt, I bet many that complain about him will realize it is not easy replacing his 20 mins a night, he is one of our most valuable support players, he allows JVR and Kessel to run out there and create offence, not many #1C's will selflessly do this, I know a few posters want Grabo, who has turned every winger he has played with this year to stone, would not be this selfless. It takes a mentality of humbleness to play with Kessel and JVR, Bozak does this just fine.
