Maybe, it's McCollum or McMeowMix or whatever his name is time to play a ton of minutes in Grand Rapids, not sure if they're signing MacDonald to be his backup - maybe I guess.

No thanks to Cogliano for a 2nd, glad Murray didn't get in on that.

Gerber has apparently signed in the SEL... could not find a job in the NHL he liked...

"Martin Gerber will be playing for Växjö in the Swedish Elitserien. Nice addition for the newcomers..."

I dunno.

A second seems like too much, but a third would have been robbery on our part.

Not sure...maybe I guess, but a 3rd from us is like a glorified 2nd rounder - and I don't know if I'd pay that for a reclamation project center who sucks at faceoffs and really can't find his niche in the league. Maybe...

He's a former 1st rounder and ready to step in and contribute now. Giving up a 2nd rounder for a team that has a need to fill (small but fast -- very fast, and is pretty good on face offs) is not a big deal. For a rebuilding team like the Sens, for sure, it makes little sense, but for the Ducks, why not?

His faceoff winning percentage was atrocious: 41.6 percent last season (461-647) after posting a 43-percent winning percentage in the previous season. That was one reason why blogger Tyler Dellow didn't see Cogliano as a long-term prospect for the Oilers last September, the others being that "he isn't really a guy who creates a lot of offence or one who is particularly good defensively.

He seems pretty bad on faceoffs.

He seems pretty bad on faceoffs it seems.

He's still young, which means that alluring potential is still there. But he's yet to show anything that makes one think he'll fulfill it.

I hope for his sake that he grows his game over the summer. I haven't seen much of him, but if the guy that wrote this article knows his stuff, then the future doesn't look so bright for the kid.

I've never seen him ever win a faceoff the times I've watched. Has he improved?

Someone (probably on twitter) said he was good on face offs. Maybe that was relative to the rest of the Oilers.

Heh. The suggestion was that he wanted a 1-way, and was only getting 2-way offers...
