Can't just go of stats but 1 goal in 14 games suggest he is labouring.

I was thinking that Colburne might be the key piece in a trade for Luongo but now might might be hesitant making the deal. Is there progress here? How do you see his overall game and how do you project him moving ahead? Is there any suggestion he is a bust? And if you were Vancouver would you be moving Luongo to get Colburne?

Not trying to slag anyone here but only trying to get some insight into this player.
Colborne is definitely playing better than his stats indicate. However, he seems to be playing a lot more timid lately. I think Eakins has him centering Frattin to see if he can get Colborne going.

I didn't follow the Marlies enough last year to give you an honest opinion on his progress but the kid's skating seems greatly improved.
