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.
Giroux publicly undressing him on the rush on a regular basis would be kind of entertaining.
