1: A fantastic talent that preforms great right from the start.
2: A team so terrible or injured that they have no other options
3: A team that's given up on the season so no reason to not play their kids.

You think its some kind of unique disfunction of Martin to not put much responsiblilty on the rookies when in reality that's just what a coach of a team trying to be competitive will do.
You keep missing the point again.

Leblanc is talented enough to get 10-12 minutes.

Four is too little and 20 is too much.

I hope you understand now.
