Collberg was 17 in a league of men. He played very well in the WJC, against his own competition. He's also a forward.
The whole Finnish team was disgustingly bad. Nothing new. I said the same thing about Mikael Granlund 3 years ago in Ottawa and look what happened to him. Maatta had 32 points in OHL (23 in POffs) while he was 16. I would say someone is underestimating this player.

And yet 8 out of 10 picks were defensmen? Yeah, go figure.
