Your snarky reply makes my point. Thanks.
In all seriousness what you said wasn't wrong, but Collberg, while not a good physical player, doesn't really shy away from contact (few Swedes of this generation do) and like Timmins said in the Alfie comparison, has a good enough frame to bulk up even if he's 5'11" and not 6'0". I agree he's struggled more against high end talent and that's one reason he wasn't the same prospect that Forsberg was in this draft, but I'm not worried about Collberg's size. He's bigger than Kristo who you don't hear the same concerns about.

He could bust but I don't think it's that likely, especially by second round pick standards. The bigger issue is whether he ends up a depth scorer or more than that.
