With Horcoff and Gagner in front of him and his horrible faceoff win % I don't see him going anywhere in Edmonton.
Cogs is only 21 years old and already has 2 18 goal season back to back. It is obviously going to take some time to get use to the wing. He has speed and goes in the corners. I would be more than happy to keep him with the Oilers. Even if he ends up being a 3rd liner he will get 20 goals on the third line and with his speed he is going to be a shut down penalty guy.
