I dont hate Coburn but I also dont think he cant be replaced. He has played against good competition but doesnt do well against them. Plus Grossmann does a pretty damn good job each time he faces Malkin and such. Alot better job than Coburn.
I agree with this. He is a good player but if we can upgrade our team by trading Coburn we should do it. But we need to have a plan to bring in another top 4 defender. Couturier is way more important to slowing down guys like Malkin and Ovechkin than Coburn is.
