Compare that to Nurse, who put up who scored 41 points in 68 games (3rd in D-scoring, and 10th overall on his team) playing on a stacked team including Sproul and Cousins that had one of the highest goals per game ratio in the OHL...

I don't mean to put down Nurse as I like him quite a bit but he's a huge step back from Bogosian at the same age.
My only counter to that would be Pietrangelo. He recorded 53 points in 60 games the same season on a team that scored 272 goals (73 more than the Petes and 10 more than the 2012/13 Greyhounds). Pietrangelo, has proven to be the superior defenseman in the NHL.

Not that I am disagreeing with you about Bogosian being much better developed than Nurse at the same age.
