I think it's obvious that Coburn needs a reliable partner and one who can move the puck in order to be successful, much of why I think he'd be a great fit on the Ducks. Pretty sure many Ducks fans would agree!
Not sure many would agree with you. At the very, very best Sbisa is equal to Coburn Sbisa is younger and has yet to peak out. Coburn is what he is at this point of his career. A very inconsistent middle pairing defender.
I would take Sbisa in a heartbeat with Coburn going the other way.
