There's also a reason why the Flyers have failed miserably this year in so many ways. Is it unfair to single out Coburn here? I don't think so. The Flyers currently lack a puck moving defenseman and a PPQB. Do you realize the Flyers only put one defenseman consistently on our collective powerplays? If the Flyers had someone to play those roles I guarantee we'd be a better team. Coburn is unable to do either, and he's not physical nor smart enough defensively to make up for it.
Coburn has failed time and time again to make strides towards being a more complete player. He's regressing; NOT reaching his "prime". He had a "good" year last year? By "good" do you mean
inconsistent and mediocre
And as far as the last statement re: cap... good luck with that one.
so move coburn because he's struggled this year along with the rest of the team and isn't an offensive defense, good one. i also like how being bad for 27 games in shortened season, again with the rest of the team, is regressing. and the bold leads me to believe you are clueless. and then you go on to say that the cap won't be going back up in a few years. wow
btw the flyers defense is not bad.
