It is funny how everyone seems to have this need to label players in relation to their potential depth chart position. Tinordi/Leblanc etc. were drafted because they have what it takes to be integral parts of a championship calibre team. These types of players are the foundation and backbone of winning teams and are absolutely vital to winning championships. I was happy with Tinordi being picked because he has the potential to become an asset that is nearly impossible to trade for.......not because I felt that he needed to be a top pairing d-man just because he was drafted in the first round.
