Really believe Cogliano was rushed into the NHL too soon and would have been better off with another year in junior and maybe 1 more in the minors. Instead, a desperate Oiler team rushed him into the lineup and despite a decent rookie season his numbers and goal totals have dipped nearly every year since. He showed signs of bouncing back last season, but to me Cogliano perfectly epitomizes what can happen to a promising prospect if he's rushed in to the NHL too soon in his career. Expectations for both him and Gagner may have been too high on that team as well.
Regardless - fresh start for him in Anahiem - be interesting to see what kind of effect the move will have on his numbers.
