My prediction for L.Leblanc:
30-35pts (maybe 40pts) for 2011-2012.
1st year should just be for getting used to the AHL...and hopefully he will be very healthy and stay healthy for most of the season (or avoid serious injuries).
2nd line center minutes...with some well-deserved PP time...
Also...give him some winger minutes just in case...maybe he can be a solid center/winger...

2nd year in AHL (2012-2013):
45pts-50pts (or 50-60pts+)
I expect more in his 2nd AHL year.
His first year in AHL should be all about gradually getting used to the AHL and its size, his defensive game, gaining muscle/weight without losing any speed...

NHL 2012-2013: a few games during mid-season and maybe will stay with the Habs towards the end of the season (depending on how healthy our Habs are and of course...on his development/progression).

NHL 2013-2014: I expect Leblanc to start the season as a...Hab. Or at worst he will join the Habs after 30-40 AHL games.
NHL...3rd line center? 2nd line winger? 3rd line center to start and may promoted in the future as #2 center. We shall see...
