They'd do it because Cogliano has better upside, and is basically matching Backes in points even though Cogliano's linemates have been poor and Backes benefits from playing with the best offensive players on his team.

Cogliano can also knock guys over with his explosive stride, and we'll probably see it alot more as he matures physically.
