Braydon Coburn

Does anyone know if he'll be playing in the next NHL season? Can anyone give me a quick summary of where he's at? Thanks.

He's is certainly in the mix and it depends how he goes in training camp. Coburn is eligible for the AHL next season so i think that he would probably start there and only promote him when they think he is ready, like Lehtonen this season. If the team acquires an experienced d-man in the off-season I wouldn't be suprised if Coburn spent the entire season in Chicago.

No he isn't. I clarified this with Don in the interview. It's near the end of it. Now, he could end up there at the very end of the year, but that's it.

Did you get the sense from your interview Holly that Coburn was ready for the NHL jump or did you feel that DW was probably going to leave him in Portland and then maybe at the end of the year bring him to Chicago?

I don't get the sense that it's a decision anyone will have to make, because the league won't be playing anyway.

While our esteemed online editor avoids the question I'll be happy to state that yes, I believe Coburn has the goods to make the big team out of camp if they decide to play hockey this season. Big kid that moves incredibly well. Appears comfortable on the puck and while not a muck disturber by any means I do not see him getting pushed around by many people in the crease. In my estimation by far and away the best skater at prospect camp and ready for prime time

The hockey fan in me agrees with you about not playing next year.

But the business man in me senses more hope, much more than the doom-and-gloom media suggests (but who can blame them, it sells papers). I could regale you with a couple dozen possible reasons why I think this, but that would just be way too damn long and boring. Let's just say that I see signs that this situation has an ending that doesn't wipe out the season.

The possibility obviously exists that the two sides will indeed bunker themselves in. That's a given. But there's more than a glimmer of hope that a deal can be worked out. That's the feeling I get, though I seem to be in the minority on that. Even though I don't have much or any direct knowledge of this particular situation (like pretty much everyone), my instincts tell me a solution is probable.

Time will tell.

Well the problem is that if the season doesn't start on time the Thrashers have no choice but to send him down to junior so that he can play some games. And once he's in junior he can't be recalled.

So if the season starts on time, then sure, he's a good bet to play in the league much like Phaneuf. But if it doesn't, both Coburn and Phaneuf will likely head back to junior for lack of a better option.

Colburn signed so he wouldn't be forced to sign a rookie contract after the new CBA is together where he would make a fraction of what he is making now.

No one knows whether or not the new CBA will apply to players drafted before it, though. If Don Waddell thought there was a strong chance he wouldn't have to pay Coburn so much money once the new agreement is reached, he wouldn't have signed Coburn now.

Do you think there will be Coburn-Phaneuf comparisons for the rest of their careers?

Both canadian defencemen drafted one after each other and the thrashers had a shot at phaneuf

While an American I'd think adding Suter to complete the comparitive hat-trick would be fair. These cats going 6-7-8 in the same year makes for nice fodder while chatting at the bar. Nearly as much as Staal/Horton/Zherdev

Maybe, but I think a better comparison would be to Jay-Bo. They are much more similar players.
