He has his limits, which are the same as they've been since the Flyers traded for him. But as the other guy said, he's fine as long as you don't expect him to be something he's not.
At $4.5 Killion per season, that's lead pairing money. That's not complimentary money. Coburn is simply a luxury that this team can't afford. I could care less about the limited he plays because he just can't be relied upon to make constantly good decisions when he's on the ice. And honestly, you'd expect that after being paired with guys like Jason Smith, Derian Hatcher, and Kimmo Timonen, that some hockey sense would rub off on him, but he just hasn't been able to pull it together. I don't understand how one guy continually gets gets a pass. He's got to go and the sooner, the better.
