When he plays physically, he's excellent. He may be the fastest 6'5 guy in the league, so that is always a thrill. Also, he was important on the PK.
Say what you will, but I'm certainly not interested in trading him. I have a feeling he'll make everyone aware as to why he's making the cash that he is and why he's the longest tenured Flyer currently.
For how much he sucks he lead us in minutes this year and he is by far our best defensive defenseman. Finding a 6 5 guy who can skate like that... good luck. Coburn gets such a bad wrap but he is literally the only defnseman on the team who can skate the puck out of the zone and into the ozone. No one on the team is physically capable of doing that.
