Well we'll agree to disagree on Kreider's hockey sense. Timmins 1st rounders are usually filled with POSSIBLE incredible ceiling and high upside and should I mention, strong skating skills. Which was the reason for the AKost pick. Price, Fischer, McDo and MaxPac. Went totally off board with Chip who became BPA for him once he starts falling. By the way, I'm not saying Leblanc is not Timmins' type of pick, just saying I believe he had other options.
