Marlies’ Joe Colborne victim of war of playoff attrition

http://www.thestar.com/sports/leafs/...yoff-attrition



Maple Leaf prospects Joe Colborne, left, and Matt Frattin look on as the Marlies practise Tuesday ahead of Game 4 of their AHL playoff series against the Abbotsford Heat.

Quote:
ABBOTSFORD, B.C.—Dallas Eakins walked to the doorway of the therapy room and called out, “Joe.”

“Ohhhh,” came the multi-voiced chorus from within, and out walked Joe Colborne with the kind of look of uncertainty on his face you expect when you’re a professional athlete summoned to the coach’s office.

The message from Eakins, the Toronto Marlies head coach, was simple and straightforward; Colborne was to be scratched from Game 4 of the AHL series against the Abbotsford Heat on Tuesday night after playing in every post-season match so far this spring.

A slash in Game 2 of the opening-round series against Rochester had left Colborne not only with a badly lacerated finger that had to be constantly frozen, but one that has the stitches ripped open every game and has the Leaf doctors concerned enough about the health of the digit that they’ve had Colborne on a heavy regimen of antibiotics.

“It’s not my choice to come out,” Colborne said in resigned tones as he climbed aboard a stationary bike while his teammates took to the ice for the morning skate. “I would never ask out.”

Like this quote, was playing well until his injury. Leafs fans have to be patient with this guy, I suspect the Kaberle deal will be a deal we look back on, that was one of Burke's best when Biggs and Colborne mature.

“You have to learn pretty quickly in a market like Toronto that you can’t listen too much to what people say because despite them not knowing everything, people just say what’s on their minds”

He gets it. Good to see.

This is more like an unhealthy scratch.

I know this isn't like playing though a separated shoulder, or a torn knee ligament, etc. But this would be pretty painful, good to see that we was willing to play through it, I have a feeling he'll live up to his 2nd line centre potential eventually, hopefully it's here.

Should shut-up the people saying he's been MIA.

Ironically, his playoff production with the injury has been better than the last 3/4 of the season...
