I think it has a lot to do with timing, in juniors it's much easier to get into position, at this level you don't have that much time.
This is interesting, thanks for the report...it could either be a serious issue with Collberg's mental game (when I first read that I thought of Kostitsyn...), or it could just be growing pains. It sounds like his overall game is coming along nicely though, which could be good in the long run.
