It doesn't but they were asking the value of a Coburn trade with Edmonton, which is a poor trading partner with the Flyers. This summer is going to be intersting though. The Fyers only have 9 forwards signed for next year and under $800 thousand in cap space. Buying out Briere will give them another $6.5 mil, but bringing in any notable free agent will eat up most of that hit. I think another big salary could be moved and out of Coburn, Mezz, and Grossman, Coburn is probably the only one other teams would trade for.
