HE HAS BEEN in Philadelphia longer than Kimmo Timonen. Longer than Danny Briere, too, and Scott Hartnell. Take it further, Braydon Coburn's tenure here exceeds Doc Halladay's and Cliff Lee's and Shady McCoy's and, well, pretty much every pro athlete in this town save the thirtysomethings who still make up the core of the Phillies. He is in his seventh season as a Philadelphia Flyer, Coburn is, and it seems finally, that we may be warming to him. Still only 27 years old, he is no longer the defenseman fans dread seeing out there in a big moment, is no longer the defenseman that he himself described the other day as "a skate-as-fast-as-I-can-all-over-the-place kind of cowboy.

Braydon Coburn is not sure how his blast from the point got through a thicket of screeners' legs and into the net for the game's first goal in the Flyers' 3-2 overtime win against the Kings on Tuesday night. No matter. The point is not how his shot found the back of the net, which extended the 22-year-old defenseman's scoring streak to five games with two goals and five assists. The point is that it was the residue of the progress the steadily developing blue-liner is making during his first full season in the NHL. Paired with veteran Derian Hatcher to form one of the league's tallest defensive tandems - both stand 6-foot-5 - Coburn is making the deal general manager Paul Holmgren made to get him from Atlanta for Alexei Zhitnik last February look shrewd.

CLAUDE GIROUX Put simply, the Flyers are 15-1-3 when Giroux scores a goal this season. He is dangerous in all three zones and with 66 points in 71 games, Giroux has been consistent enough to be their leading scorer. JEFF CARTER Carter, a force to be reckoned with when he is skating well, has quietly scored five goals in his last six games. He has 12 points in his last 11 contests and figures to be a key cog in the Flyers' playoff plans. BRAYDON COBURN Sure, Kimmo Timonen has played well in Chris Pronger's absence.

After a day of hope, the decision came down yesterday morning that Braydon Coburn, who took a 50-stitch cut around his left eye in Game 2, would not be able to play in Game 4 last night. "We were hopeful [Wednesday]," Flyers coach John Stevens said after yesterday morning's pregame skate. "He got on the ice a little bit, but he's still not ready to play. I think he's getting closer, but definitely not playing tonight. " Later, Stevens added, "I mean, we're not going to put anybody back in the lineup if we don't feel they're ready to play, and clearly that's the case right now. He's a young kid that wants to play.

The Flyers re-signed restricted free agent Braydon Coburn to a two-year deal for a $3.2 million cap hit per season on Thursday. That means the Flyers' top five defensemen have a combined $21.8 million cap hit for 2010-11 - or $4.4 million per player. They also acquired 6-foot-2, 223-pound defenseman Andrej Meszaros by sending a second-round draft pick in 2012 to Tampa Bay. Meszaros, a physical player, has a cap hit of $4 million. Drafted in the first round (23d overall)

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren spent much of his time yesterday negotiating with current Flyers who are restricted free agents before the annual signing frenzy begins leaguewide tomorrow. Braydon Coburn, Darroll Powe and Dan Carcillo are the Flyers' notable restricted free agents. Powe and Carcillo should be due small raises - and were already offered the mandatory 110 percent salary hike. Both players could be looking for more. Coburn, on the other hand, could be due a lot more.

The Chicago Wolves spoiled Kjell Samuelsson's debut last night as coach of the Phantoms, who rallied before falling, 3-2, in an AHL game at AllState Arena. The Phantoms struck first on a power play, getting a goal from David Printz at 17 minutes, 3 seconds of the first period. Ryan Potulny and Marty Murray provided assists. Chicago tied it 20 seconds later on a goal by Stephen Baby. Braydon Coburn gave the Wolves a 2-1 lead when he netted a power-play goal at 14:07 of the second period.

It is a long, grotesque cut that caresses the top and side of Braydon Coburn's left eye, accompanied now by a line of stitched railroad tracks and a bounty of nature's colors. The eye remained swollen shut, more than 36 hours after a deflected puck did its awful work. Coburn, the Flyers' best remaining defenseman once Kimmo Timonen went out with a blood clot in his left foot, did not play in Game 3 last night against the Pittsburgh Penguins. But he says he feels OK, and that he remains hopeful.

DALLAS - Braydon Coburn, one of the Flyers' top-pair defensemen, missed his fourth straight game Saturday night and said his goal was to play Tuesday in Chicago. Nick Schultz was in the lineup Saturday in Dallas. Following Saturday's morning skate, Coburn said he had his best practice since being sidelined by a left foot injury in the opener in Boston. "Every day I'm getting closer to where I want to be," he said. "He's not ready himself," coach Craig Berube said. "I'm seeing enough for him to play, but the player has to feel like he is ready to play.

HUMBLE AND unassuming, Flyers defenseman Braydon Coburn does not like to talk about himself. Ask him about his confidence, the minutes he chews up nightly in the Stanley Cup playoffs, and the tough assignments he draws, and Coburn is more likely to deflect praise to his teammates. Ask Flyers coach Peter Laviolette, though, about Coburn and he will tell you about one of his team's unsung heroes through the first five playoff wins this spring. "Since I got here, Braydon Coburn has been a rock," Laviolette said.

The goals-allowed numbers don't lie: The Flyers have missed defenseman Braydon Coburn, contributing to their 0-2-2 start. And, so, yes, his return to practice Wednesday was a positive development. "Obviously he plays in a lot of key situations and some big minutes," Andrew MacDonald, Coburn's defensive partner, said after practice in Voorhees. ". . . It's great to see him back out there. It looks like he's skating well, and he'll be a big help. " After playing in a 2-1 opening-night loss in Boston on Oct. 8, Coburn missed the next three games with an undisclosed injury.

FOG WAS billowing out of the Zamboni entrance, with the Wells Fargo Center's new lighting system on display, as each Flyer skated out to a raucous introduction. Through all the pomp and circumstance of the home opener, the Flyers' longest-tenured player was conspicuously absent. Braydon Coburn, wearing a suit, was standing at the edge of the bench gripping crutches. Coburn, 29, sat out what would have been his eighth home opener with the team with an undisclosed "lower-body injury.

NEW YORK - There were no Flyers fans sitting along the glass for Dan Carcillo to gloat in front of on Wednesday night. Instead, it was a jubilant Madison Square Garden crowd ignited by Carcillo's go-ahead goal. The Rangers tough guy spent three seasons wearing a Flyers sweater before the team let him go, failing to tender him a qualifying offer. Carcillo scored the first goal in New York's 2-1 victory over the Flyers in Game 7. "Whether it's the Flyers or any other team, it's nice to be able to contribute offensively and bring energy," Carcillo said.

NEW YORK - Flyers defenseman Braydon Coburn is the type of player who draws little notice with his consistent play that is fundamental but not flashy. In Sunday's 4-2 loss to the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden, Coburn was in the spotlight and would have preferred much less attention. Coming off his best playoff game in Friday's 2-1 win, Coburn took a step backward in the defeat, which left the Flyers trailing in the series, three games to two. Coburn was minus-2 for the game.

RUMORS WERE flying this summer, whispers that the Flyers' longest-tenured player might be on the move. Braydon Coburn wasn't listening. He had bigger things to worry about. His hometown was underwater. Days before the NHL draft in New Jersey on June 28, Coburn spent the good majority of his time hauling garbage and helping friends, neighbors and family members clean up from the devastating floods in Calgary, Alberta, which displaced nearly 100,000 people. Luckily, Coburn's own offseason home west of downtown Calgary was not impacted, but others weren't so lucky.

Defenseman Kimmo Timonen, called "the little engine that could" by teammate Scott Hartnell, will reach a milestone Monday night and the Flyers will be (yes, you've heard this before) in desperation mode when they visit the Tampa Bay Lightning. Fact is, every game is critical for the 11th-place Flyers, who are four points behind Carolina for the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot with 19 games to play. "This is huge. It's points we can't blow away," Hartnell said after a spirited, 1 hour, 15-minute practice Sunday in Voorhees.

NEWARK, N.J. - After every goal pumped behind Ilya Bryzgalov, the 17,625 Devil worshipers inside Prudential Center chanted "Flyers Suck!" in unison while pointing toward the dejected Philadelphia bench. They weren't lying. By the fifth goal, maybe the Flyers were even believing it. It took only 122 seconds into what was billed as a "must-win" game for Andrej Meszaros to be haplessly pickpocketed behind the Flyers' net, setting the tone for what ultimately ended up as a lifeless, 5-2 shellacking.

At first glance, the Flyers SkateZone dressing room looks as if it were designed by Jonathan Swift. A grouping of little guys straight ahead, a row of big fellas enveloping Kimmo Timonen along the left wall. Kimmo doesn't mind. Anyone who remembers what it looked like for him at times last year, with Chris Pronger on the shelf and Nicklas Grossmann injured and Luke Schenn playing in Toronto, can understand why. Timonen is one of the most smart, positionally sound, puck-handling defensemen to play the game, but there were times last year, because of injuries, when double shifts and unfavorable size matchups exhausted him, diminished his effectiveness and, well, made him look old. Timonen is listed generously as 5-10, 194 pounds.
