(Of course barring an improvement this year from Gagner) Hes got the skill to play with a guy like Yaks and not hold him back and the big knock on him is his footspeed.

With that said, are there any other prospects similar to Colborne on other teams around the NHL? Players who are not too highly touted but have skill and top-6 potential as well as size.
A player they should go after instead of a Colborne who's hit or miss, is the purple telletubby himself. Riley Sheahan is gonna be a 2 or 3 in this league and he is the exact type of guy they need to go after. And you know he's never gonna get in trouble again after that embarrassing moment.
