Can we think about Bournival like a Louis Leblanc with less offensive instinct?
Yeah, that's a pretty good comparison. I see LeBlanc developing as either a net driving 1st liner with some finish or a 2 way 2nd line center. Bournival is as gritty and feisty but not quite as skilled.

I think much like Streit, if the coach doesn't trust the player, it's hard to keep that player around. I think if his coach trusts him he can become a valuable top 4 guy that plays a physical game and can drop the gloves(tougher version of Komisarek).
