We have a number of roster spots coming up this year with Grabovski, Kulemin and Frattin and if these guys can keep up the excellent work we will see them soon enough.
I also pointed out that they gave Kesler a very similar treatment in his second pro year as he played the entirety of the season with Vancouver's affiliate after splitting the previous year between both the AHL and NHL.
I get the feeling there would be just as many Colborne has fallen out of favor with management topics every other day if he was originally drafted by Toronto.
