Not comfortable with that. Coburn is at least a respectable veteran in a lineup of kids all under 25. I mean, they won't be in 4 years when Streit is gone, but that lineup is still...

Hagg (22) - Schenn (27)
Gustafsson (28) - Morin (22)
Gostisbehere (24) - Lauridsen (28)

A 32-year-old veteran and locker room leader (he's on the list for the "A"), having been in Philadelphia all of this time, would do a lot more to cement the lineup than Lauridsen even if Lauridsen is four years younger.

Not sold on Lauridsen having a future as an NHLer with the Flyers even if he has a future in the NHL. You also have to believe that guys like Manning and Willcox and Bourdon and future draft picks are going to want a shot at that spot as well.
