Well yeah I guess. But when you're that bad, the idea is to collect as many Nurses, Klefboms, and RNH's as possible in the hopes that you might have a winning collection in the future. Making moves to bring in a guy like Coburn (who isn't going to carry the unit) is half-assing a proper rebuild. Sure, it makes you somewhat better immediately, but you run the risk of trading for short term limited success instead of staying with a chance at a much greater long term success. This is the model that most teams in the league follow when rebuilding their clubs. Just not the Flyers. In fact, that would have been a very Flyers-like move had it gone through.
