It's probably wishful thinking though that Edmonton would offer that.
What if Edmonton didn't offer the 7th, but they offered someone like Sam Gagner. Would you make that trade or would you still retain Coburn? Gagner could really make things interesting. You could slot him on the right side of Giroux and move Voracek to the second line with Schenn at center and Simmonds on the left side and then Read moves to the third line with Couturier and someone like Akeson. It frees up the fourth line to be Rinaldo - Laughton - Talbot with Rosehill as the extra.
