Biggest problem with Bozak is he is miscased in Toronto due to a well documented Leafs weakness at center.

He is forced into a 1st line role, playing with Kessel for lack of better options for the Leafs at present, and benefiting from that. Due to that situation of being used on the top line his stats are greater and his contract demands will be associated with his need and contribution to the Leafs. He's not a bad player and in fact useful at times, however he isn't the long-term solution to Leafs top center spot.

As a UFA very few if any other teams would be seeking out Bozak as their #1 center and paying him accordingly, so Leafs have to be careful not to do the same.
