Certainly not the elite #1C's in the league but better than anything we currently have. I like how people said his Dad had a lot of money so he's not really inspired to play as hard as he can.

It's quite the opposite, there was an interview in the off season where he said he worked out 6 days out of 7 and worked as hard as he could on his skating because he wants to be that #1 center and this is his best opportunity and is driven to be better on faceoffs, boards etc.
If he can turn out to be like David Krejci, I'd be absolutely thrilled.
I think you'd have to try pretty hard to come up with a worse comparison for Colborne than Krejci, from what I've seen they play absolutely nothing alike.
