Edmonton Oilers sign first-round pick Cogliano to entry-level deal

Canadian Press
May 2, 2007
EDMONTON (CP) - The Edmonton Oilers signed 2005 first-round pick Andrew Cogliano to an entry-level, three-year deal on Wednesday.

The slick forward is passing up his final two seasons with the University of Michigan Wolverines to pursue his professional career.

"We are extremely pleased with Andrew's decision to turn pro and we feel he's ready to move up to the next level," said Oilers general manger Kevin Lowe. "Our scouting staff has watched Andrew closely since we drafted him two years ago and we believe he has the ability to become a great player."

Cogliano, taken 25th overall, recorded career-highs in goals (24), assists (26) and points (50) in 38 games with the Wolverines in 2006-07.

The five-foot-10, 185-pound native of Woodbridge, Ont., also won a pair of gold medals with Canada at the world junior championship in 2006 and 2007.

Too bad for Michigan, Cogliano was a great one.

Reloading - wow, that would be cool if Michigan could engage in the reloading paradigm. Rebuilding is for half-a**ed programs.

I think the distinction is similar to the "downsizing" & "rightsizing" concepts in corporations. With downsizing you lose your job and feel down, but with rightsizing, you lose your job but you feel it was right.

"Paradigm." Exquisite usage.
