You're the one crying about asset management, but trading for J-Bouw without resolving Coburn's future is just that, bad asset management because you're going to let a young guy with a lot of potential go for little/nothing.

At least adding Coburn into the deal would allow us to keep JVR who's realistically a lot better than anything we'd get for Coburn.
Coburn is cheap. Trading Coburn doesn't help us in the immediate in dealing with Bouwmeester's salary, and Coburn is NOT a salary problem next year.

Carle is.

Carle and Lupul is a big help in salary, and a deal that makes perfect sense for the Panthers to give a lot of consideration to.

And this 50 cent on the dollar thing is getting out of hand...Teams will be willing to trade for...and competing with one another in a trade for Coburn. We're not talking about a bad contract, we'd be talking about dealing him (likely following next season) when teams could sign him to a long-term deal.

If Holmgren can't get value then...then he sucks at his job.
