Leblanc also have pretty good speed and can improve that, plus it's not like the difference in size is that big (6'2 for Kesler, 6'1/6'0 for Leblanc) Leblanc need to fill out and that's it.

Not saying Leblanc will be better than Kesler, just saying with all his qualities and abilities we can't really put a third liner stamp on the guy right now.

Thanks guys, from what I saw I also thought that he was mobile, but I wish someone who had seen him live could comment. Has for the Bergeron comparison I don't think it's fair. I've saw some report saying Nygren is effective defensively, then again Bergeron would be better with Nygren size and grit. Nygren will never have Bergeron shot tho. Pretty interesting pick IMO.
