According to multiple sources, the Leafs, who would like to have Bozak back next season, are not interested in signing him to such a price tag.

Bozak, who picked up 12 goals and 16 assists for 28 points in 46 games with the Leafs this season, has expressed his desire to re-sign with Toronto.

However, most NHL teams do not view Bozak as a top line center, one club executive recently told TFP, and anything north of $3 million per year might be a stretch.
He's totally going to demand himself out of a job, unless he & his agent finds a dumb GM, who, we all know are out there. 5.5 million?

No way Nonis pays that.
