Catching Up With Cogs
In January, we endured one of the worst and longest losing streaks in franchise history at 13 games. After a 3-4 overtime loss to the Winnipeg Jets on the road, Bob Murray finally had enough, put his foot down, and made a move. The following day, January 14th, he traded a fan favorite, sending shockwaves through the fanbase. Andrew Cogliano was sent to the Dallas Stars for Devin Shore.
Fans hated this trade because Cogliano was one of the hardest working players on the team and he literally never missed a game, earning himself the “Iron Man” nickname. I was okay with the trade since Cogliano wasn’t really scoring and being a fan favorite doesn’t win games.
Since joining the Stars he has only picked up 3 points (1G, 2A) in 17 games. That’s pretty much the standard for Cogliano so we didn’t lose too much. Cogliano, however, suffered an injury during the Stars vs Vegas game and actually had to miss a game. So now the iron man streak is actually over. We don’t acknowledge “the suspension”.
Devin Shore has been a nice addition to the team. He gets on the board when he wants too. He got his 2nd goal with the team in the 3-4 loss to the Blackhawks. He has 6 points (2G, 4A) in 18 games. This trade feels like a pretty even on. At least, so far.
