Braydon Coburn

<3 Coburn, handled Nash and others pretty damn well last game. Dude needs his own thread.

I actually thought MacDonald was really bad with the puck in game 4, but Coburn has been really good.

Did not realize that. I knew he's struggles but wow.

Btw since this a Coburn thread I'm gonna give him credit for that.

What a solid player Braydon Coburn is. He won't dazzle you with his offensive capabilities, but there are few players in the NHL who are better at out and out defending. He's big, fast, strong, and doesn't make too many mistakes. Just a good player, the type of player you want out on the ice as time expires (if you're ahead, that is).

While this isn't always true about Coburn, it certainly has been for most of this season.

Good year for Coburn, he's playing with a lot more consistency then I've noticed in the past.

I think he's been our most consistent player over the three or four years.

No....he sucks. Trade him for picks

Can't imagine who could replace him if he were injured....

Season to season, maybe not game to game.

Cant argue that he rises to the occasion. Arguably our best Dman this entire series? Havent seen much out of Kimmo personally.

The only other defender that I might consider would be Timonen, but his speed and agility have plummeted the past two seasons. Can't think of who else has been more consistent. I don't know what "season to season" and "game to game" mean, but how is the most consistent defender not Coburn?

Coburn is a solid #2 -#3 D on most teams.
He is not the problem. Every cup winning team needs players like him who just deliver night after night at a reasonable contract.
Coby is a workhorse for the team but struggles when asked to play like a #1.

Being asked to play like a #1 isn't the only time he struggles


He's been great in the playoffs so far though

I think it's funny how people were in love with Grossmann when he first got here and can't understand what has happened to him. Ignoring the fact that he was paired with Coburn his first year here who could cover up his short comings.

I really think Coburn is under appreciated by many because he doesn't put up points but having a mean that can match up against any type of player is princess. He has the speed to play fast guys, strength to play the PFs and the reach to take away space from snipers.

I think its the fact he can play extremely well but is subject to boneheaded plays, that other players of a similar caliber commit less frequently.

He is on a fair cap hit, and aside from Timonen who is 37, id argue he's our most important defenseman.

He is more important than Timonen. Who do you think would be harder to replace: he or Coburn?

If Timonen was still 37 he'd be more important. But it's not 2012 anymore.

Pretty sure I said he was more important than Timonen (by stating Kimmo's age, I was also implying that age was considered in my decision)

As i already said he is more important, I think I would continue with that theme and say he would be harder to replace. We have no one else who can matchup like Coburn, whereas i believe Streit can function in a similar capacity as Timonen

sorry bud, 39 it is. Just meant to imply he's old and no longer in his prime (while still very serviceable obviously)

Ah okay. When you said "He is on a fair cap hit, and aside from Timonen who is 37, id argue he's our most important defenseman," I figured you meant that Timonen was still more important.
