Braydon Coburn trade rumors: Flyers fielding calls, according to report
Dreger is reporting that Philadelphia manager Paul Holmgren is fielding calls about the availability of the 28-year-old defenseman, according to a rival general manager. Coburn is entering the second-year of a four-year, $18 million contract that carries an annual average value of $4.5 million.
Dreger said the Carolina Hurricanes and Edmonton Oilers are both teams that likely have interest in the 6'5 defenseman. It makes sense, too, because Carolina manager Jim Rutherford has expressed interest in a top-four defenseman and Coburn certainly would fit the bill.
