That Ryder and Ference value can be allocated elswhere for a prospect greater than Colbourne plus more.
I believe Taylor Hall had the same rating as Backlund. The ratings themselves don't matter. It's the analysis that's important. Colborne is a big dude, skates well, good playmaker. Trust me, this deal would be a hard sell to Bruins fans, might even be wishful thinking on my part.
