We are a better team with him, wouldnt you like to have him against the Caps tonight instead of Andreas Nodl?
Is he overpaid? Of course he is. But the guy is clutch. Period. He scored some big goals for this team down the stretch last season and in the playoffs. He stepped up when his team needed him.
I think there are only 2 reasons this is being discussed:
1. Coburn will need to be re-signed and will need a raise;
2. There is a widespread feeling (that I share) that the defense is one piece short of being truly world-class... and it'll take at least 5-6 mln/yr to fill that piece.
