Coburn wasn't a top 5 pick. Add in that Coburn struggled for over a year at the NHL level, and at the time of the trade there was at least some concern that he might not develop.

And the way the Coburn traded ended up, as pretty much one of the worst trades over the last 10 years, leads me to believe that it won't be repeated.

Good call on bringing him up though. I hadn't thought up him when I originally posted.
