Flyers hoping to move Braydon Coburn by Monday. Teams are calling.— Tim Panaccio (@tpanotchCSN) March 1, 2015
No word on which teams are interested in Coburn's services, but as we've written a few times, this seems like a really great time for the Flyers to move him. Sure, he's a key part of their defense right now, and losing him will hurt their already-long playoff odds, but that's clearly not the focus here.
Coburn is a good player, but he can fetch the Flyers a pretty strong return right now -- we're thinking a first round pick -- and the Flyers have plenty of good young players in the system ready for a full crack at the NHL next season. It's been a good run for Coburn in Philadelphia, but it really looks like he'll be gone by 3 p.m. on Monday.
