Oh and about Collberg, its where he was picked, I don't think anyone would've traded up to grab him either.
I've seen Lazar play several games this year, never felt he had above average NHL-level offensive talent. I don't think he'd be able to put up 60pts like Plekanec, I see him likely being at 20g-20a in his prime. I'm really not sold on him, excellent prospect who I think should be ranked higher than he has been in most mock drafts but he doesn't have the "elite" offensive talent or goalscoring ability like Mantha, Rychel, Erne etc. Not to say I wouldn't be very happy to pick him in our spot and eat crow about it later on.
