Yea I'm sure they are one of the rumored 25 teams that are interested in him, since they tried to sign him last year after his freshman year, which if they had done, they would likely have a lot of pissed off Denver fans, since we would have signed their top two scorers in Bozak and Trotter after their freshman and sophmore seasons (although it was Trotter's 3 year in the NCAA, he got redshirted his freshman year due to injury, so his first year doesn't count in terms of eligibility.
Ive seen Bozak a few times, last year I thought Trotter was better and while he was a sophmore, Bozak as a freshman was a year older then Trotter. But he was on pace for a huge year this season before the injury forced him to miss a large chunk of the season. I would be happy if we got him, at 23, he's a little further along in his development, although most of that time was spent in the BCHL, as he has only played in 60 games at the NCAA level in his career.
Since they hype is out of control on him and Gilroy, I hope the Habs try and get Christian Hanson from Notre Dame. His team got eliminated yesterday, so I assume he will sign with some team soon. Big center, with some grit and hands.

Bozak will be signed to an entry level deal, so I'd probably take a shot at him.
I think Gilory is the best FA out there, then Brad Thiessen if he opts to leave a year early, his team (Quailer's team) there season is over, so we'll see if he goes back for another year. Since Quailer's there, I'd rather see him go back for his senior year, Steve can try and sell him on the Habs, lol.
