For both teams, yes.

Colborne is on a downward trend right now, and doesnt have the skillset to be anything other than a top six player. Havent seen much of him this year, but he didnt exactly impress me from what i saw at the end of last year. At this point I doubt he is anything to write home about in the future. Just my opinion tho.

Biggs could be the X factor here, I think he could end up being a tremendous top nine PF from what I've seen of him thus far this year. If Biggs develops into that, it ends up being a tremendous deal for you guys.

Plus, you got Liles indirectly from the deal as well, so thats an added bonus.

As a Bruins fan tho, I still make the deal 10 times out of 10, Kaberle had 11 points in the POs and althought didnt exactly "resurrect" our anemic PP, he played well enough.
