Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Braydon Coburn is still not quite ready to play as his team readies to face the Dallas Stars on Saturday.

Coburn seems to be taking precautionary steps more than anything else. "[Friday], I was getting the feeling I might need a couple more days just based on some of the skating and maneuvering things I was doing," Coburn told CSNPhilly.com. "I didn’t want to put myself in a position to get hurt again."

Braydon Coburn could return to action on Saturday after missing the last three games with a lower body injury.

The Flyers could certainly use the services of one of their top blueliners as they have yet to win after four games. Do not expect a lot of points from Coburn as he had only 17 last season in a full season. "He’s close but we’ll see tomorrow," coach Craig Berube said. "See if he is cleared to play. There are some things I am looking for that I don’t see. There are good things that I do see. It’s a day-to-day thing. See if he feels better and more confident. I think it is a confidence thing. I don’t like putting anyone in there who doesn’t feel like they are 100 percent this early in the season. We’d like to have him back but I want to make sure he is ready."

Look for Brayden Coburn to be on the first defensive pairing with Andrew MacDonald this season.

Rich Chere of the Philadelphia Inquirer & Daily News projects the duo to be the first pairing with Mark Streit and Niklas Grossmann making up the second unit and Michael Del Zotto teaming up with Luke Schenn as the third pairing. Coburn had only five goals and 17 points in 82 games last season but look for a slight improvement to 20-25 points in 2014-15.

Mark Spector of Sportsnet.ca said that the Edmonton Oilers could be interested in Philadelphia blueliner Braydon Coburn.

The Oilers certainly need help on their blueline and he is a steady defenseman despite his weak showing at times during the first round of the 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs. He is a minutes eater on the blueline and can play the power play as well but his value will be five-on-five and on penalty killing. Stay tuned.
