I don't think it will be that much. Is there a better defenseman than Coburn available? Coburn gets killed by Flyers fans but he is still a good top 4 defenseman on a reasonable contract. Teams aren't trading those, and really the Flyers shouldn't either. The only other quality defenseman I could see offered in a package to move up is Yandle, which would be an out of character move by Maloney. Carolina wants help now and has an internal budget so you can cross guys off like Myers from Buffalo.
