In all honesty, I always found the buzz/expectations regarding Leblanc to be fairly moderate (esp. given where he was born and drafted).

I like Leblanc; he's a smart player, works hard, and understands the game well - I think this will get him to the NHL in a 3rd line role (although he could complement a 2nd line as well) - and unless I have just missed it somehow, I felt most had similar expectations.

Hmm, maybe I'm getting better at ignoring it...but I noticed with Latendresse.
