I agree but I dont see him getting any less than 3 million. Guys like Carle are getting 3.5 after 1 good season. Jones got 2.75(although a bad contract) after 1 good playoffs and then there's guys like Jeff Finger who gets 3.5 million and was never anythign more than average. Coburn is a 24 year defenseman who has played 23 minutes a game since he has been with this team and never played anything less than on the 2nd pairing. He's going to play a lot of minutes in every situation and put up around 30 points a season with a possibility of more. I dont see any way they sign him for less than 3 million. it doesnt mean I agree with it but the market for dmen is what it is and unless Homer brings youtube vids of coburn getting turned like 10 year old squirt, he's going to get a decent raise.
