You know, I've heard a lot of shocking assertions since I joined here.

- The Drozdetsky hype.
- The Nitty > Biron argument.
- The Keep Stevens Brigade
- The "JVR sucks" argument from people that had never seen him play.

But this one ranks up there in the pantheon.

Coburn is a mildly astonishing -8 despite playing with Kimmo/Parent for most of the year and is one of the worst PP d-men who receives PP time, and has been regressing for 2 years but apparently he's worth more than one of the top goalie prospects in the league.
