Not to mention that he is 38 and declining, chances are that he's only going to be a 25 point winger this season.
He could easily be replaced, but I see nobody on our roster that could effectively do it (unless we move Ryan to the second line). Cogliano is a worse finisher than Blake and I'm not sure McMillan is good enough offensively to play 16+ minutes with Koivu and Selanne.

Not to mention if we move Cogliano to the second line, we have nobody to centre the third line (IMO McMillan is far more effective playing on the wing than in the middle)
