Point is that while we can all have our say to how good or bad the situation is, you never know since you are not the prospect in question. But when the said prospect seems to be frustrated by it as well....well you know it's not going the way it should. Let's hope for his sake that he regroups and find the positives out of it 'cause seems he has no other choice.
Collberg's size caused him to fall. We'll see just how well Mitch Moroz does in comparison. Collberg was ranked pretty much across the board from the early to late 'teens of the first round.

Lets see. I like the Collberg's pick and I sincerly hope for a "Naslund-Lethinen-top6etc-type-of-future", but I wouldn't be shocked if he turns out into another Anti Nieminen-type.
No this is wrong. We don't know where teams had him ranked. It may well be that all or almost all had him ranked in the top 20. All we know is that when each team picked in round 1 there was at least one player available that they had higher ranked.
Do you think that because we took Galchenyuk that proves Timmins didn't feel Collberg was among the top 20?
