If you want to judge a Leafs prospect, you HAVE to watch him yourself - going by the opinions of other fans just doesn't work here.
They either get hyped and overhyped and stupidly hyped to the point where they are clearly going to fall flat and disappoint people purely out of the lofty heights that are created for them.
They are crucified and torn up and every single aspect or weakness of their game is highlighted as a reason as to "why he won't make it".
Colborne is alright. Won't be top line material, has significant weaknesses in his game, but he has the skill and ability to be a regular NHLer.
