Even though Edmonton has a slurry of dmen right now (9 competing for a roster spot I believe), they can send Belov and Kelfbom to the AHL as they are on 2-way deals and then just put Larrsen on waivers hoping he makes it to OKC and leave Grebeshkov as a 7th. (This is all assuming that another dman wouldn't be sent back to Flyers as it is apparent they are trying to unload one.)

Edmonton Defense with Coburn looks great:

Smid - Petry
Ference - J. Schultz
Schultz - Coburn
Grebeshkov

They can then role three pairings pretty equally throughout a game without worry (except with maybe N.Schultz).
Problem is the oilers do not have a Pronger going on the LTIR and for those who are talking about pushing the bunus till next year need to look at who is up for contracts. For the oilers to take on Coburn they need to send a contract either to the flyers or somewhere else to make the deal work
