I know next to nothing about Bogosian, so I did some quick googling to find some scouting reports and what I?ve read is he was drafting as a offensive defenceman and that didn?t pan out and he morphed into a shut down dman who hits and stands up for his teammates.

I don?t know if any of that is accurate or even close to reality, but isn?t that what fans and Brian Burke have been yelling for?

This is good. Bogosian as a bottom pairing/7th guy is a good signing. Gives Keefe options.
Well done Dubas. And I still think he tinkers more.

Come on guys.....is this good, great, meh, awful, weak sauce or s

Those are your choices.

Previous posts inconclusive.

I need to know if I have to drink to forget or raise a glass...

It's good. They spent a fair price to acquire a bottom pairing penalty killing defenseman who just did that job reasonably well for the team that won the cup.

I Agree

Great sign. Dubas is on fire.

I still have no idea how he will get cap compliance but so far, so good.
A.K.A Gardiner51, Changed back to Kaberle15 now that he is retired.

Is Bogosion the studious, binder-loving type? Because it'd be great to have insider notes on the structure and schemes Tampa deploys.

Great signing. Adds the punishing aspect the leafs need in the bottom pairing, and replaces the sorely missed scapegoat for all the leafs problems when they lose that Polak vacated.

I'm actually a little surprised that the Lightning brought Schenn back instead of Bogosian. Bogosian played more games in the playoffs (20 vs. 11) and averaged more ice-time (17:39 vs. 10:51). Schenn only got $800k from the Lightning but I mean would Bogosian not have taken that to stay there?

Just did a quick calculation on CapFriendly. Leafs have 2.6 mill to sign Dermott, Mikheyev and have  a 21 man roster.  Keep in mind Engvall is waiver exempt for 15 more games so they could potentially save 500k on a minimun contract, sending him down. They're good.

Perfectly reasonable 6/7 defenceman. As long as he?s not really relied on to be more than that, it?s a good signing.

As long as he keeps Marincin in the minors I'm good

Man Bogosian's only 30 years old? I pegged him to be closer to 35. Playing for crap teams your whole career really does a number.

Same draft as Luke Schenn, Alex Pietrangelo, Doughty and Stamkos.
Dang, you beat me to it.

 ;D
It's kind of amazing that 3 of those first 5 draft picks won a Cup on the same team. Plus all of the top 5 picks have won a Cup. I'd be a little surprised if either of those coincidences have happened in any other draft year.
