My point was, that despite his comment, we shouldn't try to compare his style against any established players until he establishes himself to be a regular NHL player.
Too many times we've been disappointed, as a fan base, because we were expecting a player to develop into something glorious that never came to pass.
Let's not set our expectations for any of our prospects too high!
Let me get this straight...He should not say the type of game he wants to play or the type of player he hopes to become because fans are too stupid to not know it isn't certain he will turn out the way he hopes ? You may want to rethink that, if you thought about it at all before typing it.
If Colborne could be come a bit meaner and show consistancy he could turn out to be the ideal number 2 or 3 center depending on wether Kadri is a number 1 or 2. He also may not . Either way he is starting to look like an NHLer and has the tools to be a useful player.
