The fact that he's in the running for a top 6 position on a stacked Canadian WJC squad with another year of eligibility ahead of him AND there being a lockout is pretty ridiculous for a 5th rounder. Gallagher and Leblanc couldn't do it on lesser squads.
Hudon does have top line potential, but that is still something of a longshot IMO.

He has the same problem a lot of Habs prospects have actually, in that he's very good at a lot of things and in the next level when he can't flat out dominate, might struggle a little to find his identity. It's the same problem Leblanc has, though Hudon might be potentially a better playmaker.

Collberg on the other hand, has a potentially elite or a near elite level wrist shot. He has other things going for him too, but I think a lot of people are underestimating just how valuable that weapon is.
