I am taking this article with a grain of salt as it may just be a writers personal agenda at play here but, where there is smoke.........
As if just the thought of you suggesting that Lefebvre isn't intelligent wasn't enough of a farce, the fact that you'd give this article any credibility, to think that the Habs would try to sabotage one of their top prospects' career is completely absurd.

The fact is that Leblanc, injured or not, hasn't been playing well. He should show a heck of a lot more at that level and he doesn't. He loses the puck for nothing, falls for no reasons, rarely drives the net and makes poor decisions on the ice. Have you ever considered that perhaps, the coaching staff feels like ice time, including PP, is earned and not given based on the players' draft ranking?

EDIT: That being said, he's only 21 and he is a local product. Fans, media and especially the organization need to show some patience with the kid.
