Well if the Flyers didn't play above .500 hockey when they were pretty much already assured an early vacation maybe they could have had the 5th to leverage....heck the 8th spot would have been much better as well
None of those defenders are available. People really seem to under estimate what Coburn brings to the table. No he doesn't quarterback a power play and go e you 40 points a year, but will lead a pk and also eat 20-22 mins a night while coming in at 4.5 a year for three more years. With streit in the mix I would be willing to part with Coburn for the 5th overall. Make it part of a bigger deal. Coburn will provide 20 points a year for his new team too. Maybe he even breaks out given a different role with a different coach. Flyers can add nurse at 5 and another too not h prospect at 11.

We all want him to be something he is not, which is why he gets so much grief around here
