No chance would I do that. LeBlanc, at this stage, is a much more well rounded player is is versatile enough to play in the top six or the bottom six, giving him much better odds to make it as an NHLer. If Kadri isn't in the top six, he's not an NHLer, and his skating issues and inability to produce at the NHL level are likely of great concern to Burke and friends.

Not to mention, despite just playing seven games at the AHL level this year, LeBlanc has just two fewer goals than Kadri has posted in 20 games. I don't think the Montreal brass would even consider swapping LeBlanc for Kadri, let alone adding a 2nd rounder. It has way too much potential to blow up in their face and I just don't see what the upside would be for them.
