Coburn can at least hang with the big boys in a puck-moving sense. I don't know whether or not Marshall will ever get there.

The other players in this mix are Hostetter, who I'm not expecting miracles from, and Lauridsen, who is really impressing people but I'm still not sold.
Chris,
It looks as though the staff is high on Matt Read. I believe he is what 24? What does the future hold for him?
