He has freakishly athletic tools, great for a d-man, especially of his size. He just needs to stop forcing the play and making mistakes.
That may be the case, but I'd rather look at the market before jumping the gun and committing to Coburn. This team is too reliant on a 37 year old Pronger. When he goes out the d falls apart. How long are we going to have to wait for a soon to be 27 year old to put it together? He has gotten worse, not better.
