He's pretty disappointing. I didn't notice him at all yet.

The Kadri Frattin Ross line is awesome so far. Likin Ross's game a lot, hopefully he can find a home in the lineup here.

Is Kadri playing centre?

Abbott is certainly making a case to be at Leafs training camp, should we ever have one this year or next.

Ross looks a little shaky with the puck. Doesn't seem like he has the confidence to shoot when he should.

I think he just needs to bury a couple.

I've seen Gunnar as a comparison been used a lot. Gunnar with better outlet passing could maybe describe his play in the NHL before he left.

Playing with super-elite AHLer Joey Crabb helped. Colborne has been a 30-40 point AHL player for his entire career except for about 20 games. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to be underwhelmed by him just by watching his game for 5 minutes.

You must have your eyes closed with the game being on. Colborne has played quite well so far tonight. Haters going to hate.

Ha ha. I've watched very few games. I don't even know what # he wears, but I was just going to say Gunnar simply because he doesn't get noticed (in bad situations).

You qualified your statement already. Quite remarkable, your ability to judge a player and his abilities in just 5 minutes?! I guess pro scouts need only a minute to juge/grade players?

I don't hate Colborne. I want him to do well. You should look at the time I posted that comment. I posted that comment literally five minutes before he actually became noticeable. I spoke too soon when I left that comment. I also commented that I had a feeling he would score a goal. I hope he does.

Kadri keeps getting pulled out of the faceoff.
