I think that Lablanc suffers from overexposure as a prospect. With other prospects,we as a group dream about their "ceilngs", or carefully try to balance
top end perdictions with reality. Oddly, in Lablanc's case people try to identify
the "basement".Most fans say things like he'll be a great third line player. And
there is little chance he'll be less than that. But he could be much more.
Even first lines on contenders need people that play well in the corners,
look after defensive responsabilities for their linemates, and just help others
play effectively. Lablanc may have the skills, and smarts to be one of those.
Of course, Plenc is probably also one of those players who's ideal role is
to help good players take the next step, and win. And many people here really
underrate him as well.
