LeBlanc would have gotten drafted on skill alone, just not in the 1st round.
If Grigorenko isn't a hardworker and doesn't have intensity Gauthier won't draft him and Timmins wouldn't want him to either. Apparently Galchenyuk doesn't have a problem with that and he may be available.Whoever they choose I'm confident it will be the best choice available when they choose,look at McDonagh and Pacioretty,Leblanc,Tinordi and Beaulieu as 1st rounders not bad where they were set to pick.With the stakes higher they will be doing their homework extensively before the draft to be sure,the Habs have two of the best people in hockey, judging prospects in Pierre and Trevor.So whether or not Grigorenko has intensity,Louis Leblanc is a Hab and will undoubtedly make his mark for the Habs.Faksa might be the one nobody knows where the Habs are picking as far as I know,so let's just wait for the choice.
