That's true but I think an examination of what has killed the majority teams down the stretch and in the playoffs has more often been throwing AHL quality talent onto the blue line due to injuries. If the choice is between carrying some extra forward depth or another backup goalie or an extra NHL level defender then the choice is an easy one for me to make.

That being said, Homer needs to be really careful if he thinks he can keep both Carle and Coburn. Though perhaps he is waiting until Coburn has a contract to trade him?
