They are. He has been absolutely dreadful this season. But the word is they want a puck moving defenseman coming in to replace Matt Carle, the abscenes of him was bigger than expected, especially with Meszaros being injured.

They are already a mess defensively almost as bad as us so can't see them moving Coburn soon.

Hunwick would be perfect.

I think that'd be a good pickup.

The only problem might be that Scuderi probably isn't interested in going from the Kings to the Avs, unless they make the playoffs and make some noise in the playoffs.

On another note our FO might use PAP to put in a good word for us in talks with Streit.

I can't imagine they're getting ready to boot Coburn. They deal him they have absolutely no one to rebuild their defense around. But...it's Philly. They've given up on players far quicker than this. I've no idea what the heck they're going to do with that blueline.

They will have some $ issues sooner than later, and just added a year to Kimmo. Playing with the CapGeek site, Coburn looks like a prime candidate for "odd man out".

It seems like the Kings are getting ready to move on without Mitchell for sure, and maybe Scuderi as well if Muzzin continues to surprise. That leaves them with Doughty, Greene, Voynov, Muzzin, Drewiske, Martinez, and Ellerby. The wise move would probably be to keep Scuderi but I think there's a good chance he walks. So long as we don't throw Scott Hannan money at the guy I'd love for him to play here.

Man I love Willie (the Croatian connection and all that), so I'm pretty sad to see him dealing with injuries.

As for Scuderi I'd overpay him a little bit on the $ side of the deal just to get him accept a shorter deal.

Coburn is on 4.5M until 15/16. And looking horrible so far this season. Cap problems this summer and a big money player isn't producing,

Was just basing it off of dialog and rumblings on the Philly board along with some Cap issue rumors floating around. Nothing substantial that I've seen.

I was just curious if there is actually a rumour of Holmgren shopping him or something.

I have a few Philly-friends who talk about the rumours that they are willing to give up Coburn to add a puck moving d-man. Nothing about Avs being interested though.

Coburn for Elliott? I would do this, might be a risk and put a little extra pressure on Barrie, but I have a tonne of confidence in Barrie right now.


Although, if Sherman could pull off another magic trick and trade Hunwick + 2nd for Coburn I wouldn't complain either.

Any interest in Stafford?

TFP saying he wants to leave Buffalo. I know it's the fourth period, but I like stirring the pot. He's pretty expensive though, maybe we could swap Jones for him? Underachiever this year for another underachiever.

Coburn would be the defenseman I would LOVE to get.

Also Robin IMO you're wrong, Schenn has been their worst defenseman.

Ick. HELL NO on Coburn/Elliott. Elliott's still on his ELC whereas Coburn has $14 million remaining on his current deal. Besides, I don't think Coburn is nearly as good as that salary suggests.

There's no need to put "extra pressure" on Barrie. If anything, that'll lessen the pressure since the two of them are competing for a limited number of spots on the NHL roster.

I seriously don't think the Flyers will trade Coburn. They flip him and they got nothin' except for a very old Kimmo Timonen, Nik Grossman, and Luke frickin' Schenn. A puckmover ain't helping that potential trainwreck.

Really? One of my best friends who is a die hard Flyers-fan and thinks he has been their best one. With Grossmann as a close second.

Stafford would be an addition I would like on this team, but only if the team is able to move Jones (or is willing to buy him out)

Stafford is just as bad as Jones.

Schenn's foot speed will be his downfall.

I imagine EVERYONE wants to leave Buffalo at this point.

Seems like a lateral move to me if Jones is the piece going out. I'd say no.

Jones and Stafford are equally bad and on pretty much the same contract. About as lateral as it gets.

I'd like Coburn on this team I think he'll bounce back well in the future, but I'm just not sure we have anything that could realistically get him. Flyers would be crazy to move him but with Holmgren literally anything is possible.
