I don't share your enthusiasm for Armstrong. I think he's the next Bourque.

Prust is not a Higgins-type player, he's a Moen-type player. He's here to fight, to score 5-10 goals per year, and to provide a veteran presence on the 3rd and 4th line.

High end talent. Leblanc's ceiling isn't exactly as high as those guys, but he's certainly way closer than Higgins or Moore have ever been.
Obviously we need Galchenyuk more, and we have Galchenyuk, so what's your point?

A good team needs depth.

If Leblanc can become a two-way forward who contributes 40-50 points a year on the 2nd line, and is capable of 1st line spot duty when injury strikes (e.g. Higgins), then I'll be extremely satisfied.
