According to a scout, the Leafs will probably keep Tyler Bozak for the rest of the season and then might allow him to walk as an unrestricted free agent.
"I don't think they'll trade him at the deadline," the scout said. "What are you going to get for an impending UFA? Not much. Keep him and hopefully make the playoffs. I don't think they'll re-sign him in the summer though. He's going to want Ryan O'Reilly money ($4 million to $5 million per season) and I don't think he's worth it." Bozak centers Toronto's top line between Phil Kessel and James van Riemsdyk. He has six goals and 14 points in 24 games. He is also third in the league in faceoffs taken (545) and he's won 54.7 percent of the time.
