Not sure WTF Bergevin and Lefebvre are thinking, but I don't like the way he's being used or labelled as. He's being used as a grinder, when he's not that.
I haven't seen him much at center but I definitely think he has top 6 potential even if he ends up on a super skilled 3rd line.

I wonder if the 'you're a 3rd liner' narrative is the whole story. Good on Chaput for his play but I have no idea why he should be taking minutes from Leblanc.

Either way, I'm retracting some of my ill will towards Lefebvre. They're starting to look real good out there.

Blunden anyone?
