That's why I think general managers value him much more than hfboards posters. He gives you a solid 20 mins and good pk play while chipping in 20-25 points a year. That I think might warrant a top pick back. Am I valuing Coburn and the term a little too much? Maybe, but it gives a gm flexibility when trading for him.
You'd think so, but Top 4 defensemen would need to consistently be available for trade to know for sure. Which seems strange that Coburn would be available considering we're always trying to find and unable to get them.
