One good season, or postseason, and people will change their tune about Coburn.
Holmgren might seemingly overpay on player contracts, but what has it ever prevented the franchise from doing? From what I can see, the Flyers do whatever they damn well please. The only time I remember the cap forcing the Flyers to make a bad move, was the Carcillo to Coyotes deal. But, that was to keep Giroux on the big club... That seems like a good sacrifice to me.
