as for who is going to do it? Look to winnipeg, where antropov has been disappointing and jokinen is not a legit 2nd liner anymore. Bozak and Little gives them two top-six faceoff studs. Roy and Ribiero, on the other hand, are terrible at faceoffs.
Just from my perspective - this is why UFA's are typically total train wrecks. Because teams are desperate and willing to pay well over market value for UFAs. I will say that any team paying Bozak $5+M will not be successful long term, because he has no ability to earn that contract.
