Jim Matheson has a solid article in the EJ today, and among the exceptional quotes is this from Andrew Cogliano’s agent Anton Thun:
“At the end of the day, there still needs to be a recognition of what he has done and, also, if the club … and I’m not saying this in a negative way, if they don’t appreciate him for his talents and they believe there are other players more capable, that’s fine, too. The world’s a big place, there are 30 teams in this league.”
On one hand I can feel for Cogliano; buddy’s been traded a bunch of times (but is still here) and now the organization is playing hardball on the contract. But you know what? That’s exactly what they should be doing.
My guess is Cogliano gets traded someday soon. I know. Captain Obvious.
