I totally agree. The hate Leblanc is getting on this board is 100% because he is francophone. He would not be getting anywhere near this amount of flack otherwise.
I think that there's a reaction from fans who are tired of hearing people complain about the lack of francophones, where it seems they almost want the team to have no francophones out of spite or something. Which is just as ridiculous as the complaints about the lack of French Canadians on the team.
There have been far worse 1st round selections than a guy who played well at the WJC and has been the best of his team at every level.
Seriously, give the guy a break.
