Leblanc is much more closer to having achieved his upper level of skill, while Galchenyuk can still build up on every levels. I'd get Leblanc on our lineup before Gal.

Obviously, except if we are in the middle of the playoffs.. Then I'd pick young gamebreaker explosive talent
Leblanc is a good prospect but wasn't pencilled in to the starting line-up by any means coming in to this season. I think Galchenyuk may have already surpassed Leblanc although that doesn't necessarily mean that Montreal would promote him before Leblanc.
