The interesting part is that I highly doubt Bozak will get that money he desires from any team even as a UFA this summer, including his own.
Once he tests the market and gets a reality check he may come crawling back to the Leafs with a new number in mind..
If Nonis is smart he allows Bozak the opportunity to to get this lesson as the market will decide his fate. Bozak will learn that he may only be a #1 center in Toronto based on the situation, but other teams are not going to be recruiting him as a #1 center willing to pay the $$$ that is afforded such players.
Nonis should call his bluff as it will likely result in a contract savings end result for Toronto, or somebody else's mistake to deal with for overpaying.
Signature: There is no greater demonstration of Fan patience then to suggest to "Play the Kids " and be willing to accept the consequences of those actions..
