I am proud to say I've always been a Coburn fan boy and a supporter, defending him at times I probably shouldn't have. But he's been proving me right the last 4 months!
I've said it before... but I think the extension, and having his kid, has put his mind in the right place. And as we all know, he has all the physical skill in the world, can skate incredibly, can be immense in the corner and in front of the net, can hit big, clear the zone, start the play out of the zone, and put the puck on net hard.

It was always his head letting him down, but that seems to have changed for the good part of this year.

He is also an ironman... like 5 games missed since he joined us!?
