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?

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

http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/blog/puck_daddy/post/Why-the-Oilers-cut-ties-with-Andrew-Cogliano-in-;_ylt=AlqK9XpVCzh9Bi8xYT911N17vLYF?urn=nhl-wp9024

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.

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

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

Reading Puck Daddy's piece on the Cogliano trade. Dude won 41.6% of his faceoffs. A guy like Patrice Bergeron betters that w/ a pool noodle.

I mean, they continued to let him take draws after sniffing out that pattern of failure? Malhotra wins that many with a broom.

@jtbourne Craig MacTavish could've come out in dress shoes and won that many with the butt end of his stick.

Hehe
