Its not ideal, but it really wouldnt surprise me if it was tried. Cant say I watched much of Cogliano as an Oiler, but from what the more intelligent Oiler fans said was that he was better as a center. If Bonino doesnt work out, which is quite possible, than Cogs could slot in there. Yeah he wasnt great there last season, but we expect bounceback seasons from pretty much everyone on the roster so why not Cogliano as well.

I think Bonino, Holland, Cogliano and Koivu will all get a chance centering the second line, unless one of the first two sticks early.
