Schenn, Grossmann are top 2 defensive defensemen.
Coburn, Lauridsen - other 2 defensive defensemen.

Too many defensive guys, not enough PMD.
That is why Coburn or Grossmann must go.

I would prefer to keep Grossmann if healthy,
he hits people and plays with an edge.

Coburn is faster skater, but softer player.
Coburn is a defenseman without a postition,
skates like PMD, plays like PMD (not physical),
but has no offensive skills.

He is overrated and overpaid.
With all due respect, are you high?

Look, we have all seen what Coburn can do. He can't bring angry Coburn every game, but he can be a solid top pairing guy. And he is an iron man, having missed no more than 4 games since 2008.

Yes, eating that puck botched his development as some Hulk on skates. But the guy is an asset, much more so than Grossmann, who injuries are clearly taking a toll on, and will continue to be problematic in the long term.
