What are Boyce and Brent making? About 15% more than that, that's what he should be making.

I'd offer him around 1.25 - 1.5 for 2 or 3 years.

He has struggled offensively this year but he's still been great on the draw and showed that he can be an NHL regular (something most unsigned college FAs cannot do).

Plus even with this years horrid sophomore slump he's still a 0.5 PPG game player over his NHL career, reason enough to give him some more time.

Even if he just continues to be the player he has been, on average though his career to date, he would be a VERY effective third line C. 40 pts per year while being strong on the draw and good on the PK makes him a useful player.

Using that logic, Komi and Lebda are going to be 2 top defensemen of the NHL next season.....Can't wait!

Yeah have to say 1 - 1.5 at best. Whether it's just a sophomore slump or not, he hasn't had a great year. Can't expect to really cash in this year.

Little to no O , nothing special on the fore-check , no physical game.

Frankly i'm not sure why he is still on the #1/2 lines.
Yes ..I agree with you and the OP...Im not a big Bozak fan...Everyone has him penciled in for the 3rd line C but Im not so sure...I wouldn't mind seeing him packaged but can't see it happening. If he does return...Id agree that 1-1.25 for no more than 2 years would be fair. He is only a depth player at this point and may be a Marlie next year.......Im starting to think that Burke will only play favorites for so long....

My guess would be a short term (1-2 years) deal at around $1.5M. He might deserve less after this season, but he's shown what he's capable of doing last year, so we don't want to throw him under the bus too quickly. Grabo is a prime example of that.

We could do better just letting him walk,because he really doesn't bring anything standout to the chemistry of the team short term or long term. Maybe he will get better,but to be honest i think he is a bust waiting to happen.

Third/fourth line money should be offered.

He has been awful, I don't think he should be expecting much for his next contract.

Sorry, but I think Brent>Bozak and will be the same price with a bit more size and ability. Either way, there is no center on this team that will be or should be Kessel's center. Obviously Grabo's line should be left intact.

Thanks for using one of the most if not the most overrated stat to try and prove some stupid point. It didn't work.

I was thinking of starting a new thread and then saw this one...

MikeInBuffalo

Tyler Bozak has 4 pts in last 19 gms(2g,2a). Will not be surprised if Burke doesnt qualify him over the summer(would cost $4 Mil)

-twitter

what do you guys think? Why would it cost us 4mil to qualify him?

It won't cost that to qualify him. It'll be under a million. His salary is only $875k, the rest is bonuses.

He's a staple on Andy Frost's "After the game" call-in show. He writes for Eklund too now. Used to post here for a while, but I haven't seen a post from him in a long time.

Well he is wrong on the qualifying amount as that is only based upon a players base salary not on his bonus structure.

Bozak has base of $875k and a bonus structure of $2.85 mil for a total of $3.725 mil combined.

Players making below < $1 mil require a minimum 10% increase in their qualifying offers to retain their rights as RFA players. So that is + $87.5k in addition to his $875k base or ~$963k.
