I think people underestimate how much Bozak would get on the open market. UFAs who have value always go for a lot more than they are worth--it's just a matter of supply and demand.

I don't know if Bozak will get $5.5 million, but I'd be surprised if he gets less than $5 million. There are lots of teams that could use a centre with Bozak's skill set, and when he's available to the highest bidder, you have to overpay to get him.

It's the same reason people thinking the Leafs are going to get Clarkson for $4 million or less need to give their heads a shake.
