Some quotes from Collberg after yesterdays game:

"After the knee injury, I was off to a good start in the European Trophy. Then I took off and didn't find the same flow."

"I didn't get to play a lot in Montreal and only got in three games there. It was mostly a lot of practices and it got my confidence down and things like that, but it was a fun and valuable experience."

"I don't regret going to the camp. I learnt a lot about how it works over there. I try to work hard to get back into over here and score my first goal. I want to get that great feeling back and I think have gotten it in the last couple of games here."

"I don't think I've been very good with the puck, I've been a bit timid handling it."

"After coming home from Montreal, I found myself standing around too much, which is a bit of a disadvantage (on the big ice). Since then, I've gotten my legs back, and my speed is something I really need because I'm not a big guy."

"I brought some energy back from the U20 national team. I'm on a good line right now with Kahnberg and McGrath and I'm feeling better every game."
I would still say it's silly to suggest that he shouldn't have come over, since we are talking about someone that was viewed as a possible 1st round pick. The Habs are going to do what they think is best for his future and that would be to start getting a feel for the smaller ice since hopefully he will be in the NHL for a long time.

To say that the Habs gm should have predicted this, also a moot point. Collberg could have been injured getting his mail or tripping over his own shoes. Injuries can happen any time and they likely felt they needed to get a closer look at him since a year later he will be here for good, at least that's what I assume.

I can understand as a fan not being happy about his play or the fact that he was brought over to the Habs camp, but the move is one the club must have felt was important despite the issues that could result from it. I remember when local Hamilton fans were pissed because the Habs GM at the time let Halak go to the WC's and he replaced him with a 19 year old Carey Price. Fans of the team wanted what was best for the team to win, but the reality is that the NHL is the biggest business out there and once they get drafted by said NHL team it's going to be all about what said NHL club feels is best for them. Of course different teams will handle situations differently. The Wings have a ton of experience with Swedish players, the Habs haven't had good good luck with players they draft out of Sweden and now we have a rookie GM that is going to make mistakes along the way. Not saying it was a mistake as to me it made a ton of sense.

It's going to be interesting to see how he adapts to North American hockey. He needs to do a lot of weight lifting to increase his strength and speed (do a lot of leg work).

I can't wait to see what he does in Hamilton over the next 2 years, particularly his 2nd year. There's no rush.

Collberg moved to the top line with Axelsson and Wennberg for todays game (10 AM ET). Won't get a better chance to score his first goal.

I thought it was a 10:30 start so I missed the 1st, but he's listed on the 2nd line on the SHL website.

Frölunda extends lead! Collberg find right in immediately after a face-off in the offensive zone shoot a surprising shot, looking past Larsson just next post.

what a goal! His 1st on the year. Has been seeing time on the point on the PP which is good to see. Had a nice keep in by diving for a lose puck.

He's playing great and scored a nice goal. Seems to have found his confidence back.

Guys, I looked at his hockeydb stats and it appears Collberg sucks.

that's where he's listed, was the same last game but before leaving for the 4 Nations he was mostly on the 2nd line, so hopefully he gets more ice time as they are playing the worst team in the SHL.

Clever play to push the puck forward before shooting.

Looking forward to SC coming to play for the Habs, he's been playing lots with the Axelsson's over the last two seasons and they are accomplished defensive forwards with good offence. Stands to reason that he should be NHL ready when he arrives IMO.

Habs need a RH shooter badly, especially with Gionta nearing the end of his contract,

After scoring his 1st goal this season, and playing a great game last time out, he is back to where he is used to playing this year which is the 4th line

Yea don't read to much into it, Frölunda's checking line is listed as the first line and so on. He played a very good game today, some nice plays that could've resulted in goals, played just under 13 minutes and blocked 3 shots.

I use SHL.se or after the game I use swehockey.se to see what line Collberg and DLR are listed at. Is there somewhere else that has more accurate lines?

Collberg sucks and will not pan out as an NHL player. He has the potential to be a good player in the 2nd division of the Swedish league.

I guess so, guys stop updating us on how he's playing. It's a pointless endeavour as he will never play for Montreal.
