08:25 AM ET 09.14 | Based solely on draft class, Drew Doughty, Zach Bogosian and Luke Schenn -- the second, third and fifth overall draft picks from 2008 -- are in the same class, though Bogosian doesn't see it quite that way. "I'm in a little bit of a different boat than them," Bogosian said after an informal skate with Jets teammates, Tuesday. "Obviously Doughty has had a couple of good years. I haven't exactly had the greatest start to my career... but I'm still young and up to learning new things and looking forward to good things here in Winnipeg." ... The 21-year-old hopes the scrutiny lifts his play to another level. "I put pressure on myself, but anytime you play in a hockey market obviously the stakes are a little higher."

yeah...playing in a place where hockey matters is a big lift I would think

that's kind of refreshing - in effect lowering his negotiating point from Doughty's.

And I agree playing to full houses will be a change for the former ATL lifers.

Even before signing, Bogosian feeling heat

He'd better enjoy the heat coz Winnipeg is nasty cold in the winter.

Ummm...Tell that to the Leafs' players.

I'm sure there's been many a presser (or frontpage Sun headline) when they silently wished they had ended up in Sunrise or Glendale. LOL!!!

Refreshing. That's a good word for a player in Winnipeg. Refreshing. Yep. I like it.

Is this a slight dig that LA is not a hockey market? ;-)

September 14, 2011  11:11 AM ET

With the kind of money and security Doughty just turned down i would not want to be considered in his class either

the flipside is that they don't get to drive around in drop-tops in the middle of january anymore.

I thought exactly the same thing when I read the last sentence - "I put pressure on myself, but anytime you play in a hockey market obviously the stakes are a little higher."

If only the commish could read between the lines.
