Coburn has played the most out of all the defensemen, by over a minute per game. Coburn/Grossmann has been going up against top lines for most games, or Coburn/Gervais when they were split up. Timonen and Schenn have both been playing a secondary role even strength most games.
Mez has also been terrible... no argument from me here. He shouldn't be playing if he's injured, and if he's healthy, then he's just been brutal.

It doesn't really matter though, neither guy is going anywhere. We have no one ready to replace them from within the system. We also can't afford to move any roster pieces to replace them because we have nobody to replace those guys from the prospect system.
Yeah that's the problem. People may talk about giving up and dumping, but that's just cutting off your nose to spite your face.
