Letang got 3.5 for 4 years from the Pens. Although Coburn is older, they both have roughly 3 full years underneath them (Coburn had 2 20 something game years with Atlanta, which I'm ignoring for this comparison). But the main difference between Letang and Coburn is that during these 3 years, their production has gone in opposite directions respectively. They're both offensive minded dman who have the ability to be solid in their own end. They're both smooth skaters. Hopefully the Flyers, if they wish to hold onto Coburn, see that Letang got a big raise because of his progress, and deem that Coburn should not be getting a big raise because of his regression.
