Marlies have 2 players top 50 in PP goals and one of them is Frattin who has played 4 games. Hard to get the cheap assists if your shooters are firing blanks on the PP.

Jury is still out on Colborne, but we should have a better idea end of season.
Agreed that ideally he bulks up more but it's not that easy for him really:

Article from June this past summer:

Quote:
Colborne, the AHL’s player of the month for October, also had to deal with injuries and a high metabolism. The big centre’s diet includes 4,000 to 5,000 calories a day, and he recently added three different supplemental protein plans, monitored by the team nutritionist.

adding his weight ranges from 208 to 218 pounds during the season. “I think if I can get to 225 pounds and still be powerful with my skating and everything, that’d be my goal.”
