Sure, the memorial cup is only a few games, but why risk anything (like a late season injury)?

Look at it this way: the playing level of the two worst AHL teams playing against each other in a regular season game is higher than the memorial cup.
I agree. At that point in time Leblanc is better served getting bigger, faster, and stronger. He's had a big year so far as hockey is concerned, playing a major role for the dogs, and actually contributing in his first call up to the NHL. He needs all the time he can get to put on weight, and put up bigger numbers on his PRs.
