I don't have an answer to your question really. But, I have a question for you... does Cogliano currently play in Canada? major juniors? If so... I don't know how he expects to go the NCAA route. It is my understanding that when a player plays in one of Canada's major juniors leagues, they lose college eligibility. This is what happened with USHL Des Moines' Jesse Lane and Dwight LaBrosse, although Lane has decided to pay his way through Havard without playing hockey there.

Regarding this years draft picks. Each team has someone scouting different teams throughout the year looking for potential draft picks and players for thier teams. In order for them to scout a player, they have to know he's out there and he's a good prospect. Maybe they just weren't aware of Cogliano's potential, or maybe they were skeptical of the ability to capture his interest and secure him as a player in the USHL if he is in fact that good. I'm not really sure. Sorry about that.
