Where do you slot him? He clearly doesn't have a spot on the 4th line. Moen is a lock for the 3rd line, and given a good camp, Armstrong could maybe end up there. Eller, Bourque and even Gomez are contenders for that line. Plekanec and Gionta are locks for the 2nd line, and the remaining spot will go to Bourque or Eller (or Gomez ). Leblanc doesn't have a chance in hell to crack the Pacioretty-Desharnais-Cole line.

So what is left? Leadership role for the influx of rookies in Hamilton. That is vastly superior than sharing a wing with Bourque and log 8-10 minutes per night.
