Yeah. They also need defensemen, badly. That team is going to be weak until they get a legitimate number 1 defenseman. With the loss of Gonchar, suddenly the Penguins don't scare me anymore. I mean, if you thought their powerplay sucked before...

That said, we should not look to salvage them by giving them Coburn for anything less than severe overpayment. If Coburn turns into the top pairing defenseman I think he's going to be within three years, him in Pittsburgh is the LAST thing I want. Screw the return. Do not move him to the Penguins.
