I like Coburn..wish he was more consistent with his snarl and physicality but I have no qualms with extending him although I would like it in the mid 3 range or so. Coburn is a good D man..sure he has his downsides but I think he holds his own as a top 4 d-man. Not sure what the alternatives to him are plus I would rather jettison Carle and I think that is what is going to happen. Holmgren wasn't exactly happy with his play in the playoffs and specifically said that people that should have stepped up on D did not and it was clear by Carle's putrid play in the playoffs..he was alluding to him although Coburn wasn't all that great either just not as horrid as Carle. With Carle not stepping it up in Pronger's absence again so far this year...it seems he's not doing much to try and stay on the team IMO...
