Coburn is who Edmonton wants. Flyers want a top six player for him. Makes sense they are wanting Eberle. That's the only guy I could see us trading him there for.

Nothing substantial at the deadline I don't think, we make moves at the draft.

Honestly, if we move Coburn to Edmonton, who replaces him? Just doesn't make sense unless we get a player like Girardi in free agency.
It depends on what the return is for Coburn. If the Flyers get Eberle in the deal and aren't giving up too much extra, I don't really think it matters who replaces Coburn. His replacement may not be as good, but there will be options available that are close enough that the upgrade of Eberle will be worth the deal.
