Braydon Coburn only played 41 games for Atlanta, and wasn't listening to the coaches for the Wolves or the Thrashers. Zhitnik was essential in getting the Thrashers to their one playoff spot. Nobody knew he'd get fat in the following off season (he looked awful when he showed up to camp, everyone was shocked).

Bogosian has played 199 games for this franchise, and mostly all in a second pairing role with all kinds of partners and coaches. You can't compare that to Braydon Coburn at all.

The problem with the Coburn situation was that the Atlanta franchise was a place where many prospects and newly acquired players were not happy with the way the place was run at all, and just wanted to get moved no matter what.
