For them saying he's not physically ready... NugentHopkins neither and he's still very good in the nhl.

Leblanc is ready for nhl duty.
Eller has a much higher ceiling though. Leblanc will not be more than a second line forward, at best. Eller has the potential to be a first line centerman in the NHL.

Leblanc is really showing good signs though. Not physically there yet, and it might take him a while, he doesn't have a big frame. He is impressive though. He's still a little tentative. I know he has some a nice skillset in terms of stick handling, he needs to gain some confidence in his ability to use it at the NHL level. He's so smart too, love the way he thinks the game. He'll be a really efficient player for us real soon.
