...you guys just read what you want to read...
During a media scrum, Bergevin said Leblanc would be used the same way in Hamilton that he would be in MTL. They see him as a winger and for the last few games he's been on the third line with no PP. That's how they plan to use him in MTL. Stop blaming Lefevbre, it's Bergevin's and MT's call.
Leblanc really seems like a guy who could be a perfect 3rd liner. Good hockey IQ, decent shot, decent speed, really responsible on the ice, gritty along the boards. From what I've seen, his skillset doesn't reflect the one of a top 6 NHLer. Off course in the AHL he is easily a top 6 player, but they want him to get used to the third line I guess. 3rd line is no shame at all in the NHL. Most of the time they average over 15min per game, they have good salaries, they are critical to a team's success.
If there is no season and he's stuck there the whole year, I hope he'll see more ice time though.
