I do, however, think that he'll be getting those point totals against very good opposition. Leblanc could be a great winger for a guy like Eller. They'd shut down lines all day, err'day and plug in some offense to boot.
I agree with everything in the post, especially the bolded. Loved the Higgins comparison (since I wanted to make the same ). Leblanc and Eller would be great, they have the potential to become an ideal modern shut down line, which can pitch in points, keep possession and keep top lines from scoring.
