I understand that, but Timonen brings the same if not greater defensive abilities as Coburn, but a ton more offense. Just for comparisons sake, Matt Carle averaged less than a minute of TOI compared to Coburn in the playoffs. Carle isn't better than Timonen and Coburn is much better than Carle.

You take out Timonen from the lineup, the Flyers are lost. They would certainly miss Coburn, but not to the extent of Timonen
