Collymore is a fringe prospect nothing else. I severly doubt he will ever be more than an ahl player. He is barely scoring at a ppg clip in the "q" as an overage junior, which is nothing special in such a high scoring league for an offensive player. I would hardly say we "dissed him".

As far as Dawes "banging like Adam Graves" i seriously doubt that. Dawes is 179 lbs soaking wet with both pockets full of quarters. Adam wasn't the largest man, but at 210 lbs and with freakish strength for his size he could pack a wallop.

That being said, I'm high on his upside as a potential offensive force for us. He is scoring a goal a game the last i looked in the WHL, where scoring is lower than the "Q". 57 points in 40 games according to hockeydb.com, very impressive numbers for someone who hasnt turned 19 yet.
