Actually his contract is not that bad. A 28 year old with five years left on a deal with a cap hit of $5M per. Coburn will be getting more than that when he re-ups in two years. If Edler's back can be treated and he can get healthy, I'd be for swapping him for Coburn. I can't see Coburn ever being more than he is now and that is a guy who doesn't get big in games that count.
