The one thing I'm really concerned about with Collberg is his hockey IQ, at the adult level he's really struggling to learn how to use his linemates properly.

There's reasons to be skeptical but I still think he has a much higher offensive upside than McCarron and DLR, but he could go either way. Look at Jakob Silfverberg for instance, he had crappy stats until he turned into a PPG player the year he turned 21. You can't really compare Collberg and De La Rose beyond the fact that they are both Swedes.
Silfverberg showed constant development throughout his SEL career. 0.33 ppg at 19, 0.64 ppg at 20 and 1.10 ppg at 21. If Collberg manages to get 30 or so points this year, I'd be more than satisfied.
