Expect A Big Year From Bogosian

from Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe,

No doubt that Drew Doughty, a Norris Trophy finalist, has established himself as the premier defenseman from the 2008 draft. But look for Zach Bogosian, picked right after Doughty, to make a significant jump this season under the watch of Craig Ramsay in Atlanta. The 6-foot-3-inch, 205-pound Bogosian (10-13—23 in 81 games last season, 21:24 average ice time) might even be more gifted physically than Doughty. The defensive-minded Ramsay was instrumental in the development of Dennis Wideman and Johnny Boychuk, among other Boston defensemen. Bogosian, the former Cushing Academy star, should thrive under Ramsay’s patient and player-friendly approach.
