You almost answered your own question. Bogo is also 21 and it is common knowledge that d-man take longer to develop than forwards. Bogo is already the Jets top shutdown guy, just starting to find his offensive game. He is 6.3" 220ish, a fitness junkie capable of playing huge minutes, skates like the wind, has a howitzer from the point, calm and cool, and great positionally. It was no accident he was a third overall pick. I understand why the Oilers would want him as he would be a great fit. But there have been other proposals on the boards that were orders of magnitute better that what's being offered for him here.
