If people expect guys like these to be physical stay at home types they would be surprised and disappointed.
(That said Coburn has shown a willingness to play more physically in the playoffs... but a quick perusal of Flyers threads will lend you some perspective regarding his inconsistency and softness).
Coburn and Franson are nothing alike....at all.
Coburn is a great skater who plays a strong shutdown game but is limited offensively. Franson is a poor skater and a defensive liability but is very effective in the offensive zone.
