That was the whole point of the 2009 draft for whoever still believes you never draft by needs (while Habs CLEARLY went for needs on D in 2006 and 2007 and on C in 2009). The problem is that they drafted C's in 2009 that might never play that position once they reach the bigs.

I don't see Leblanc be a C in the NHL. He will be a winger. Dumont could....but not sure. Walsh has already been moved to the wings. Cichy might never be a NHL player......Remains to be seen what career Naatinen will have.

So you can draft C's all you want.....you need to draft the right ones. If that was your sole and only goal, Leblanc was NOT the pick to go with if you wanted a real C. And I always thought the world of Corban Knight who I think will be a C in the NHL.
