Well I would hope Leblanc is the furthest along of the guys in question considering he's the oldest.
But yeah, he's basically a lock to be an NHLer at this point, the question is upside. I think he has 2nd line potential, but I don't think he has the offensive tools of anyone in question except Tinordi, who offers a more unique skillset.
For me Leblanc is the 5th best prospect behind Collberg. I know others will disagree with me but for finesse players I'd go with the guy who has a higher offensive upside, even if Leblanc is a more complete talent. For what it's worth there's a drop off after 5th in the prospect pool, so it's not like I think Leblanc is a bad prospect by any means, and could very well have a better career than even Galchenyuk.
