Why to make that assessment from a couple of games of television coverage. Coburn's not flashy, what he does well are the things you don't really appreciate until someone's not doing them. Watch play-off Coburn. Hell, watch regular season Coburn during a big game. He gets plenty mean and consistently is among the Flyers with the most hits. I rarely ever see Coburn getting turned around by anyone. People who complain about his consistency probably have offensive expectations from him that he meets once every five games . . . that's not who he is. His defense is very consistent.
