He has 10 points (six goals and four assists) and a plus-three rating this season. He does not have too impressive of a skill set and looks like he could be a career AHL player"

Ugh really, I know these articles usually aren't the best informed, but how could a supposed scout say that? I agree with Coach that Collins is at least the most the most unheralded player so far and probably our most impressive bottom six forward, he won't be a top six forward in the NHL sure but you can't just write him off from even making the big show from what he's shown THIS year especially. Not really fair to call this his second year either when he was kind of in college last year...

I take everything they write with a grain of salt, particularly when it concerns the Jackets. I figure they just look at the stats sheet and start typing. Plus they made not one mention of RyJo who only became AHL eligible this year.
