Oilers Ship Cogliano to Ducks.

Various sources report the Edmonton Oilers have dealt winger Andrew Cogliano to the Anaheim Ducks for a second round pick in 2013.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Back in 2007-08, Cogliano was amongst the Oilers promising “young guns”, coming off a strong rookie season (45 points) and considered one of the foundation players upon which they would rebuild. Unfortunately, Cogliano never got back to that form again, as his point numbers decreased along with his playing time. Jim Matheson and David Staples of the Edmonton Journal had recently mused Cogliano or Gilbert Brule would become the odd man out given the club’s depth on the wing. The Ducks, needing depth on their checking lines, will hope Cogliano either regains his once-promising form, or at least rounds into a decent checking forward.


  1. Good depth move by the Ducks. After their top six forwards they have Brandon McMillan and plowed ground. One more decent third liner and they will be OK.

  2. Nice pick up by Anaheim.

    Michael Swift is another undiscovered gem.

    Will San Jose resign him or will another GM get him, hopefully Burke?

  3. You could see this coming the moment the Oilers signed Eric Belanger.
    Cogs could end up being a decent replacement for Todd Marchant. He is nowhere there yet, but having watched them both play a lot, I could see the similarities in skills.

  4. good addition. Basically free.

  5. For a 2013 2nd round pick, not the super 2012 draft!! 2012 shoud be a sick draft!
