Antropov is a pretty good player IMO, just suffered through a lot of injuries for much of his career.
Ya, I just can't think of a big, playmaking center that was a 'project' in a Leafs uniform without thinking Antropov.

If it wasn't for injury troubles, alot of people would have a much more favorable view of him. Antropov's a very good player in the right role in my opinion. If Colborne can reach that level or exceed it, that will be great for the Leafs.
