Timmins excitement for this kid really, really makes me believe in the potential I saw in him at the WJC. I knew that Forsberg was the bigger name, but I kept saying to my friend, "This Collberg kid is stealing the show".

I took Collberg high in our mock draft because I really crushed hard on this kid. I value Timmins' selections highly and if he is that excited about this guy, then we have a player. Grant said he was Timmins favorite player in the draft.

Timmins was a part of the staff that got Hossa and Alfredsson for Ottawa. He compared Gallys situation to Hossa. He compared Collberg to Alfredsson.

The addition of these two offensive players to our pool takes the pressure off Gallagher and Kristo to become top line scorers.
