Btw, how did playing with an all star defenseman work out for Coburn the last few seasons? If I recall correctly, he even made Timonen look bad, that is impressive. He actually didn't start playing semi-competent until he was demoted to the 3rd line and didn't have to match up against talented lines, which is right where he will be this upcoming season.
Finally, someone who has nailed it on the head with regards to Coburn. So far in Coburn's career, he's been nothing more than a better skating version of Randy Jones.
