I think your expectations were a little too high if you aren't happy with this teams progress. There are nine rookies in the lineup and four sophomores.
The most experienced players on this team are absolutely terrible (being Stortini and Hagel). Boyce was here for a short while and quite frankly wasn't very good. It's too early to judge Commodore.
The AHL is a professional hockey league, if you expect a bunch of 20 years old to dominate, you're sadly mistaken. The players, especially Beaulieu have progressed.
I do agree with you on Leblanc, well partially. It's way too early to classify him as a bust, but I've been disappointed in him to say the least. He's a very smart player no doubt, but he's average at everything else. Average skater, average shot, average hands, average physicality, average size. He has to start playing with more energy, he over thinks the game at the times. Sometimes he needs to go after the puck with all guns blazing. I'd like to see him add some sandpaper to his game.
