And the Flyers have no one to blame but themselves on that one.
Point was that it's not like Nashville drafted a bunch of Coburns. They've drafted d-men like Suter, Weber, Timonen, Hamhuis, etc. Two of those d-men probably (or should) wind up top 5 in Norris voting this season. There's a lot more to just drafting those types of d-men than just drafting them in the top 2 rounds.
