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
step back from Bogosian at the same age.
No sorry, I worded this wrong. I meant to say that Nurse's offensive potential isn't amazing or anything, I was trying to use Bogosian as a point of comparison as a guy that was more offensively gifted at the OHL level but has settled into a more shutdown role not as focused on offense at the NHL level - which I think Nurse would project to at the NHL level as well. Had an exam this afternoon didn't word it as well as I could have.
I thought I'd seen Nurse wearing an A in some games this year so don't know about the leader thing.
