Trading Coburn for the sake of trading him is a silly idea. Equally silly is saying of any player that we need them no matter what. Any player can be traded to improve the team overall.
Coburn is an interesting trade option because I believe he has high trade value for a team looking for a second-pairing big body who will play physically and for big minutes. He is also expendable because he is a defensive defenseman – oh, if he would only develop his offensive game!! – among a roster of defensive defenseman (less Timonen). Turning Coburn into a strong two-way Dman with significant offensive upside who can play on the first pairing would be a huge move.
