I can only wonder what Collberg's numbers would look like if he played in the CHL. Well over a point per game I would imagine.
You have to think. Still, with wingers like Collberg, you really don't know how they'll do in the show till they get there. Guys without talent don't suddenly become scoreres, but a ton of guys with elite skills just can't do put up numbers (or play defense, or skate, etc.) enough to really put together a career in the bigs.
Not trying to rain on the parade at all. I think Collberg's the best wing prospect we've drafted in years. But just like for Bozon and Hudon, or DD for example, these are guys who will make it as top six offensive players or not really make it at all. That's part of why it's so much fun to root for them.
