He absolutely is when you consider what he's been able to do despite consistently playing alongside guys who like to jump the zone.
I'm not denying that Bozak is a good fit for the Leafs right now, but the matter of fact is that he simply isn't worth a $5 million contract. He doesn't play #1 ES and PP minutes because he's a #1 center, but out of the pieces the Leafs currently have he's the best fit given where everyone else falls into place at this moment.

I wouldn't be saddened if Bozak was given a $5M deal on a 1 year contract to give Toronto's youngsters more time to round out their game and keep Nonis from wasting assets, but given Kadri, Grabovski, Komarov and perhaps Colborne coming up as #1-3C options the deal can quickly become an anchor. Hell, Grabo's deal speaks for itself.
