I think Colborne will be a good player. I was really down on him, but since he's been up you can see that he's improving game by game. His positioning and speed are light years ahead of where they were last year and his decision making with the puck is improving with each game he plays. If we move Grabovski, I wouldn't be upset if he became our third line center next season

A player he should model his game after is Martin Hanzal of the Phoenix Coyotes. He isn't much of an offensive player (~40 points), but stands 6'6, is a stud defensively and is good on the draw. The guy shuts down most of the top players in the West and is a big reason for Phoenix' success in the past few years. If Colborne could play a similar role here, he could be a very key piece for this team going forward.
