Dafoe's contract expires this year. 3.5 Million (US) for this year.
Herme might be the target since he's a solid #2 and much less costly. I think that Lehtonen might be ready for next year.
Coburn showed well in camp, nothing flashy just good fundamental defense. He is physically immature still and could use a couple more years to grow into his body and game.
For a mature organization (like the Oil), I would say he is two years from cracking the lineup. Then, he's a #2 defenseman for the next 15.
I would really hate to see him go.
The Thrashers are plenty deep with prospects on the blueline, just that Coburn is the only "blue-chip" guy. Too many #4-6 guys.
It seems, however, that a deal is in the works.
Coburn+Herme for Comrie+Rita? Maybe?
