I don't see how it's crazy to say he has Alfie potential. Alfredsson was drafted in the 6th round, if anything Collberg is better than Alfie was at the same age.

That doesn't mean Collberg is the second coming of Alfie, it doesn't mean it's even likely. You clone Alfie and odds are he won't have the same career the real Alfie did. But saying he has similar potential isn't crazy, the two of them have a lot of similar traits. Collberg could end up having a worse career than Kristo, Gallagher or Bozon too, but when you watch him he has a little more of everything and probably works harder than all of them except Gallagher.

The Alfie comparison is because they are a similar size and have a very similar skillset at the same age.

Galchenyuk has potential to be the top center in the NHL. Would I put money on it happening? No way, but when you account the skill he has at his current age, it can't be ruled out.
