Cogliano + 31 overall pick to Anaheim for 16th overall
Andrew Cogliano is obviously a solid NHL player by now, but i really feel like this Jack Campbell kid could become a star goalie in this league and kinda reminds me of Bill Ranford.
Anaheim could sure use the secondary scoring Cogliano brings and can replace an aging Sakku Koivu with him. Meanwhile we get a goalie who has a bright future and has won gold at the WJC for the USA... Thoughts?
cogliano is going to be a gd 2nd/3rd liner for us into the future, even if you could get a 16th straight up for him it wouldnt be worth the risk. Straight up for a lower pick would be more enticing for sure
Like others, I'd do this only if we were able to move up into the top 6-7. Walking away from this draft with Hall + Kabanov would be an incredible boost to the rebuild, much more so than keeping Cogliano + 31st.
In a different draft year maybe this is considered, but I think after the top 3 this draft could be a real guessing game as far as who goes where. I think someone #10 on one team's board could be #30 on another's board. For that reason, as someone else mentioned, anything short of moving up into the top 3 with another pick wouldn't make sense... and I don't see any team moving out of that pick.
Does Cogs fit the long-term future of this team? Debateable. If he is to be moved I'd prefer getting another pick for him than a package that just sees us move up. Maybe for FLA's 2nd?
Far too risky to take a goalie in the first round these days unless the draft is REALLY weak and/or you love a goalie and he is a clear-cut first round pick (aka Fleury)...the fail rate on first round goalies is just way too high, then add into the mix the chance you could get a great goalie in rounds 4-7...just not a good idea
plus with the good chance guys like Kabanov, Kuznetsov, etc. fall into the last half of the first round i would rather package picks in the 3rd round or maybe nashville's to move up to like 22-26 and grab a guy like that
I would love to see them move up in the draft for an additional 1st but unless they can get into a position to draft Nino I don't care what they do. He's the only player I would love to see in the Oilers system outside of Hall/Seguin.
I am 100% in agreeance with getting Jack Campbell in the first round, I've been pitching that idea too
he is going to be much better than JDD or Dubynk. And the best part is, he'll be quite a few years out so it gives us time to run this awful Khabi contract out the door.
Ideally, 3 1st round picks would be nice this year, be interesting to see what happens though... love draft day!! its way more exciting then trade deadline day
EDIT: just wanted to state that I'm not endorsing cogliano be traded for picking of jack campbell, just stating i'd like to draft him and would consider options if i could get him
Are you from New Zealand? Kiwi's are the only ones I know that use that term regularly instead of agreement.
Personally I think Cogs is better than anyone we could expect to get at 16. Picks after 5 or so a pretty much a crap shoot. So we'd be dealing a guy with a lot of promise for a guy that's a big question mark.
Cogliano's been awesome when he's had some normal linemates for him. The Oilers are showing how badly they misused him this season since they put him with Brule and Penner.. I doubt Cogliano gets traded.
