Guys like Coburn are like gold; in fact so is pretty much any top four d-man that plays over 21 mins a game yet earns < $3M. There are only 89 NHL blueliners that are averaging 21 minutes or more per game (as of Feb 9th). Of those 89 there are only a couple dozen making < $3M, and Coburn is on that list:
  1. Quincey, Kyle $ 0.525
  2. Gunnarsson, Carl $ 0.600
  3. Greene, Andy $ 0.738
  4. Mottau, Mike $ 0.762
  5. Staal, Marc $ 0.827
  6. Letang, Kris $ 0.835
  7. White, Ian $ 0.850
  8. Gorges, Josh $ 1.1
  9. Michalek, Zbynek $ 1.25
  10. Myers, Tyler $ 1.3
  11. Coburn, Braydon $ 1.3
  12. Johnson, Jack $ 1.425
  13. Robidas, Stephane $ 1.5
  14. Martinek, Radek $ 1.5
  15. Girardi, Daniel $ 1.55
  16. Leopold, Jordan $ 1.75
  17. Goligoski, Alex $ 1.833
  18. Zanon, Greg $ 1.933
  19. Hamhuis, Dan $ 2.00M
  20. Seidenberg, Dennis $ 2.25
  21. Aucoin, Adrian $ 2.25
  22. Daley, Trevor $ 2.3
  23. Bogosian, Zach $ 2.725
  24. Wisniewski, James $ 2.75
  25. Gleason, Tim $ 2.75

To understand his value, just consider what Ian White got TOR a couple weeks ago in that trade. Unfortunately for NSH, next season Hamhuis will no longer qualify for this list while Coburn will most likely remain on it.

The NSH fans understand Coburn's value as the consensus on their board seems to be that the below offer would get a deal done:

To PHI
G Rinne, Pekka 82 $547K, pending UFA
D Hamhuis, Dan 82 $2M, pending UFA
Total: $2.55M

To NSH
D Coburn, Braydon 85 $1.3M, pending RFA
G Boucher, Brian 77 $925K, pending UFA (for cap purposes)
3rd Rounder (from whatever year PHI still has one available to trade)*
Total: $2.23M

*I used the draft pick in place of the recommended Maroon/Matsumoto because I felt the fans there would more quickly understand the value of the offered PHI package.
