That's actually exceptional for a hockey team overall, ditch Komi. Bozak would add 2m over @5m, then you are looking at 6m+ in waste and that translates into a top 2 D upgrade which we need.
The way grabo is playing he is at least 2.5M+
Third line center for what he brings to the table should get no more than 3M at most.
My two cents
1. If Bozak wants 4-5M then he is gone.
2. Nonis will replace him with someone through FA or trade.
3. If #2 happens then Grabo will be given next year to improve his play and if not he will be traded or bought out. Cant have another year like the last one with no offense at 5.5M
