He says we signed him to an extension

MOD EDIT:

4 years, per Tim P.

Per the Flyers' official website:
Quote:
Flyers and defenseman Braydon Coburn have agreed on a multi-year contract extension, according to GM Paul Holmgren.

Goodbye Carle; a man to be replaced by Gustafsson next season.

If Coburn ends up getting 4 million a year, then Holmgren needs to have his head examined. Coburn is NOT a 4 million a year defenseman. He's not even worth what he's getting right now.

I think Coburn's had a pretty solid start to the season so far. Hope the numbers aren't too big though. If I have to choose between him and Carle, I'd choose Coburn almost every time. Sure, he won't likely ever get back to the numbers he posted in his first full season with us, but he's developed into a pretty solid shutdown guy playing alongside Timonen. We just have to hope that he can cope with being the go-to-guy on his pairing when Kimmo hangs them up.

It's good to have a battle for dumbest guy on the team as well. We don't want Hartnell to grow complacent.

Giroux?

Jagr?

Simmonds?

Voracek?

Coburn's last contract?

Etc.

There are some crappy contracts in there like Shelley, but there are far more solid contracts and a few brilliants ones thrown into the mix.

Agree. I would rather have Carle than Coburn.

Not buying it yet. I can respect a man's "sources", but one of our local beat leeches would have caught onto the story and tweeted something as well if they had news. I'll wait til it's official to celebrate.

Some of you guys need to have your head examined. Top 4 defensemen get $4m, easy.

I would rather have someone capable of defense than someone incapable of defense, outlet passes, manning the point, and roughly everything but pinching in for the occasional goal/secondary assist.

Particularly with the way our offense is headed, a defensive player like Coburn will be far more valuable long-term. That's of course ignoring the fact that Coburn is just flat out the better player. Plus his great skating is much more useful in Laviolette's system even though Carle's ability to dangerously pinch is perfect for it too I guess.



Also, wasn't there a rumor about an extension months ago, in the early offseason, that never manifested? I think I remember that.

Plenty of players get large contracts in free agency. I'd still rather not pay that much for a defensive dman who can't anchor a pairing.

Surprisingly I'd be alright with Coburn making 4 mil if in fact those are the numbers he signed for. I'd rather have Coburn at 4 mil than Carle at 4 mil.

If this means he's being chosen over Carle, I'll do a back flip

However that doesn't mean that I'm all that high on coburn either. I'm hoping for 3-4 years at 3.5
