You do realize we have Meszaros and Coburn in their mid-20s, two possible NHL puck-movers in Gustafsson and Kessel, a number of high picks in a deep defensive draft much resembling 2008, a star goalie signed long-term, a young star back-up goalie, and a significantly flooded depth in terms of forward assets that can be used to acquire more defensemen?

Yes, but I'm relying on picks in the 2012 draft to keep the puck out of our net for the next decade.

Really? You can do better than that Libertine.

Coburn has had two back to back season where he failed to reach 20 points and is currently on pace for 18. He is not Martin's comparable at all. His offensive game has been regressing since his first full season here.
Paul Martin at 26: 305 GP - 19 G - 99 A - 118 P - +24
Braydon Coburn at 26: 393 GP - 26 G - 88 A - 114 P - +31

Also because the two above are known for their offensive we're comparing their offensive play. Awesome.
