Strength isn't a problem, he has improved a lot over the course of the season and has learned how to handle opponents better. He's actually quite effective along the boards, winning puck battles more often then losing them (and that certainly wasn't the case in October).

The biggest issue, which has me worried is that he's really struggling to find chemistry with his teammates. It sort of looks like he's hiding out on the ice at times, not getting into the right spot and thus get very few passes for one timers which is his best offensive tool. One on one and when cycling the puck down low he really wants to challenge his opponents, but whenever his teammates has the puck set up in the offensive zone he often disappear. I think it has a lot to do with timing, in juniors it's much easier to get into position, at this level you don't have that much time.

Nice backhand! Also good awareness on that play.

For those wondering, "the castle" is the slot. In Swedish hockey language the slot is referred to as "slottet" (an obvious Swedification of the English term) which is also Swedish for the castle.

Even I don't know where "recycled frying" comes from though.

If anything Elitserien has the lack of a veteran cap playing in its advantage. There are plenty of SEL players who have anything from 10 to 20 years of pro experience, the bulk of the AHL's players are relatively inexperienced guys trying to work their way into the NHL.

This is interesting, thanks for the report...it could either be a serious issue with Collberg's mental game (when I first read that I thought of Kostitsyn...), or it could just be growing pains. It sounds like his overall game is coming along nicely though, which could be good in the long run.

Thanks for explaining "castle"

"recycled frying " just means he got a lot of beans on that shot.

He had another good game today, actually got into position for one times a couple of times (see 1:15 for example), has been playing good as of late. I hope he steps up big time in the playoffs.

Season over? Do you know what the team's lines are going into the playoffs?

Does this kid deserves his own thread here ?

I don't see anything that special in that guy.

- Ovechkin, Kovalev and Marinaro have their own threads! On the Canadiens board on the Hockey's Future website, a Collberg thread makes a lot more sense than any of those.

- Some Swedish posters have been pretty great about keeping us up to date on Collberg, I think they make the thread worthwhile.

One game remaining of the regular season. Probably the same lines they've been rolling for a while;

D. Axelsson - Lundqvist - Kahnberg
A. Axelsson - Olimb - Collberg
Lasu - P.J. Axelsson - Brunnström
Rosseli/Rydahl/Tolsa - Johansson - Sjöström

The same can be said about Leblanc, no?

Collberg is effectively a late first style prospect, there's plenty to discuss about him. How often do you watch Collberg again?

Collberg has all the potential to become a 50pts+ player in the NHL.

He's got tons of talent but he will need to work on the other aspects of hockey, (positioning, physical)

Collberg with another beauty of a shootout goal, new move, missed two shots with his usual move later in the shootout.

I know, I was going to start a thread about him on the Bruin's board till I saw a few here. Thank God for the "search" feature!

If the shootout goes to sudden death teams can use whoever they like infinitely.

I've seen all the games he played at the World Championship last December. And by reading all your comments, I don't need to see him play more than that. The kid should be playing junior hockey in Canada.

We won't see this kid in a Habs jersey before 3 or 4 years. So keep the thread warm, buddies.

Why should he play in a lower league ?

Because the CHL is obviously the greatest and bestest development league for any prospect ever, regardless of personality, playing style, nationality or skill level.
