Similar in being the team highest scoring center, heading into free agency, as last year Bozak produced more offense then Grabovski.
Back when Grabovski negotiated his deal he was the leading scoring center at the time.
This year Bozak plays on the #1 line, the #1 PP, the best FO man better +/- and produced more offense than Grabovski.
If he was brought back would you expect him to play ahead of or behind Grabovski on the depth chart? So since he is better than Grabovski in every aspect that is considered when awarding contacts, should Bozak ask for more or less $$ than Grabovski received in comparison?.
The Grabovski contract is a measuring stick because its a part of the Leafs internal salary structure.
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..
