I mean, he can't regress(Well, yes he could but won't happen.) THE KID IS GOLD AND YOU KNOW IM RIGHT.

I was right with Patches three year ago, I was right with Eller two years ago (Well...Im not 100% right atm :l), I will be right in two years too.

Jeez, Marc, just hire me -_-
Because it's all about risk and projections. Leblanc won't be a first line player. That's not where his skillset is and that's not his game. But there's very little risk in projecting him as a 2nd or 3rd line player because he's so smart and has a decent amount of skill.

Beaulieu or Collberg carry more risk, and might not ever reach their full potential, but they have a better chance of being more impactful players than Leblanc does.

Leblanc isn't our best prospect, but he's the closest one...
