If the Flyers ever want to trade newly signed defenseman Braydon Coburn, they’ll likely be limited to a certain number of teams they can talk to.

The Philadelphia Daily News is reporting that Coburn has a modified no-trade clause attached to his four-year, $18-million deal that kicks in next season.

No specifics were provided, but you know how these things work – if the Flyers want to shop Coburn they’ll ask him to submit a list of X teams he’s willing to go to, or X teams he refuses to go to, or maybe there’s a window of time in which he can be traded or not traded…really, whatever they negotiate.

I don’t see the Flyers trading Coburn anyway. Not with Chris Pronger, 37, and Kimmo Timonen, 36, getting on in years. Pronger’s signed until 2016-17, but the last two years were tacked on with a peanuts salary (relatively speaking) to bring the cap hit down.

    Yeah, no chance he gets traded. The Flyers never trade away their core guys after they signed contracts. 😉

    Well he is our future. Now they need give Gustafsson some more PT with the big boys. Much rather have him over Lilja and Walker.

    The only team Pronger might get traded to is the Leafs. Why? Because they currently have Lupul, and everyone knows trades involving Pronger have to involve Lupul
