I don't like leaving Leblanc out of the lineup, though, and don't like the idea of putting him into some kind of 4th line centre carousel with Gomez and Nokes, nor some revolving bottom line RW door with Armstrong and White. I'd personally find Gionta a new home (as well as Gomez, finally erasing the entire great $20 million mistake) and put Louis in there, but hey.

edit: Hell, I'll go full ****** and say that we might as well put the young 1st round pedigree together, and the best vets together, and ice:

MaxPac - Eller - Leblanc
Bourque - Plekanec - Cole
Moen - DD - Armstrong
Prust - Nokes - White
If it were up to me, barring Leblanc lighting it up in preseason, I'd have him start the year in the AHL. I think it'd be good to have him help Gallagher, Beaulieu, Tinordi, Ellis, etc while developing himself offensively.

I'd find a lot of players a new home...Gionta, Bourque, Kaberle, Weber, Palushaj, Geoffrion, among others.
