Definitely. He's shown much more than Colborne. I hope he makes the 4th line and can work his way through the lineup.
Been telling the Leafs board to be patient with Ashton for awhile now, would be fun to dig up that Ashton thread this summer. He was close to being a certifiable bust if you read some of the posts in that thread. I thought he was one of our best fwds since coming back from injury in the AHL playoffs. Not surprised he is close to making the Leafs this year.
