Zac Bogosian Has A Message For You!

Recommended Posts

EDINA, Minn. – No matter if you're a coach, a fan, a teammate – or an internet troll – Zach Bogosian has a message for you.

He's ready. He knows you've heard that before. But this time, after hip surgery, he really means it.

Let's hope. I'd feel a hell of a lot better about the defense if Bogosian is actually healthy and playing well. The right side is thin with him so if he gets hurt again after 10 games we'll either have to move Dahlin over to his off hand or we're going to be icing minor leaguers on the right side.

Bogosian has played 552 games in his NHL career with Atlanta, Winnipeg and the Sabres – and has yet to appear in the playoffs. Now that Kane hit the postseason last spring for San Jose, Bogosian is up to second in the NHL among active players with no postseason appearances. Only Jeff Skinner (579 games), who has spent his eight-year career with Carolina, has more. Following the Sabres' trade for Skinner on Thursday night, he and Bogosian could break their droughts together. https://buffalonews.com/2018/08/02/mike-harrington-healthy-bogosian-wants-to-fast-forward-the-summer-and-get-to-camp/

So we have the 1st and 2nd place player for most games played without a playoff appearance.

I've always thought a healthy Bogosian would work really well in our defense corps...

But that aside, I've also got the feeling that he's the type of guy we need as far as leadership/locker room presence. We've all been really frustrated with his injury history, but if he can stay healthy- I think he has a great attitude and could be the kind of leader we need to guide the younger players.

Thing is, even if the hip was the source of ALL his LBIs, that doesn't account for all his time lost due to UBIs.

Still believe it is foolish to be counting on Bogosian to give them 70+ quality games in the top 4.

Hopefully, he'll be what Murray expected when he traded for him.  Wouldn't want any money on it.

Nice surprise if he is good, but not counting on it

He really needs to be on the 3rd pair where he can't get hurt playing too many minutes.

Which is well & good; quite reasonable even.

Unfortunately, management seems to be counting on it.  Whether that's by design or circumstance, the season in large part still hinges on a guy that dresses 60 times a year & plays well up to 40 times upping both #'s into the 70's.  Can it be done?  Yes.  Will it?  That's far more doubtful.

But he'll be pencilled into top 4, maybe even top 2 if they decide to pair Dahlin w/ Scandella.  This season has UBI written all over it.

Let us all hope that Bogo is healthy and productive all season and throughout the playoffs. 

No matter if he plays well, or poorly, you have to admit that the intensity that the team plays with when he is on the ice is much better than when he is out of the lineup. My hope is that he is really hungry for the playoffs and has learned some lessons about taking care of his body. Bogo providing solid (not spectacular, just solid) play for the entire season would be a huge, and totally unexpected, bonus.

The team plays with more intensity when he is out there?? Not sure I admit to that

Okay, you don't HAVE to admit.....

To my eyes, on those rare opportunities we get to see Bogo skating for the Sabres, there is a better team on the ice. His presence seems to act as a catalyst. Just what I've noticed. Although it has been so long ago, it is but a fleeting memory.
