He has been with the Marlies all season. Practicing with the team for a week or two and playing 9-10 minutes on the 4th line is a good change of pace and learning opportunity. He also makes almost 10x as much money during this time as well. This is a good experience for the kid.

I'd love to see Colborne get some time. Even if it is with Orr and McLaren. They can free up some space for him with a good forecheck. It seemed to help Kadri a bit when Orr was banging for him and Mac.
This market isn't conductive to that. Put the kid in a position to succeed.
I'd say our market is a huge mix of patient and impatient. With so many vocal, varying opinions there is no need to consider our opinion when developing depth forwards. Goalies can be different, as they aren't one of 12 at their position.
