Put him on a second line with second line ice time and he's lucky to sniff 40 points.
I'm not even a fan of the Leafs, but allow me to argue in his defense.
The fact that Bozak still gets first line minutes is a testament of how good a player he actually is. He may not be a top line centre on most teams, but he is a good 1b centreman and a very good second line centre IMO. The reasons have already been given by a few posters: He is excellent on the PK, faceoffs, breakaways, shootouts, has a good shot and speed.
