The Flyers need Coburn to bring it every game, not just games in April and May. I'm done with Coburn and his inconsistent play. It's like clockwork.
Coburn is a great partner for a good defensemen but he can't carry a pair himself. The problem is the Flyers defense is full of good to great complimentary defensemen but no anchors. If you had to package him to get a better defensemen, it would make sense but now you are talking about the level of defensemen that is not available for trade. Those thinking that the Flyers can get OEL or Pietrangelo are dreaming. If Nashville, a team that gets revenue sharing, is matching the Weber contract which was worth more than the franchise, every team is.
