A tireless worker, most likely a winger, that excels in all three zones and could put around 40 points a season on the board. Sort of a 20-20 kinda guy.
If he actually has Plekanec's work ethic, which i'm not yet convinced he does, he should end up being way better than a 3rd line player. He has more raw talent and upside than Plekanec did. Plekanec is where he is today because of a sheer hard work, determination, and getting every ounce of his skill set out on the ice, pretty much every night. Nobody 5 years ago would have thought he could be a 1st line center, probably not even Plekanec himself. If Leblanc takes a page out of Plekanec's book, he will be better than Plekanec in the long run. Book it.
