IMO Collberg has great skill, but lacks hockey sense. I think that at this point, Bozon is the better prospect, particularly for Galchenyuk's wing.
That's an interesting point. I only saw Collberg at the WJCs. I didn't see a glaring lack of hockey sense (really liked that backcheck on Galchenyuk in the gold medal game) but Bozon definitely has really good offensive instincts. I think Collberg's just that little bit more quick and skilled than Bozon. It's also hard to judge because they're playing in two wildly different situations. I really like both.

No way is he a 2nd liner "at most"; I think he's far more likely to be a 2nd liner than a 1st but you need to understand what ceiling means.
This. Big time. There's no need to totally dismiss Collberg of having possible first line potential. Also how many teams have first lines wholly comprised of 'first liners'? I could definitely seen Collberg on a first line with Gally and Patches. Hell I could see Kristo, Bozon, Gallagher and even Leblanc there at times. When you have a center that projects as well as Galchenyuk you can cheat a little with his linemates.
