Why do people keep saying this? Unless Coburn is traded for a player of the same skill or better, trading Coburn is one of the worst things this team could do. That 1st round pick would be lucky to even turn into Coburn years down the road. Which means this team will have another hole on the defense for at least a couple years (and that is if that player ever turns into what Coburn is now). These are the UFA defensemen for this coming offseason. Who replaces Coburn on the blueline? There is no one on that list that is better than Coburn, and only a couple that are as good. So you are trading Coburn in hopes that in a couple years the first round pick (presumably a defenseman) is as good as Coburn is now then hoping that you can sign a guy as good as Coburn (maybe Hainsey or 35 year old Mark Streit). Instead you could just keep Coburn and have a solid top four defender rather than hoping to have one in the future. Now, if Coburn was part of a deal to bring in a better player, that is a different story. Just trading him for picks and prospects, however, is bad, bad idea.
