No, the reason I will be okay with moving Coburn is getting a younger, cheaper, good upside puck moving defenseman back. A player exactly like Sbisa. The Flyers are very young, and getting Sbisa will allow the back end to grow together with the forwards. Coburn has been here for what 8 years(?), I believe we should start looking to retool the defense somewhat.

Playoff Coburn is just a myth. He raises his game like many other players do for the playoffs. We never see that player in the regular season, which is why many Flyers fans are willing to deal him. If he showed up like he did in the playoffs every night, I wouldn't look to trade him at all. During the season you know exactly what type of play and point production you are going to get from him though.
