Many on this board, myself included feel that the fact the draft was in Montreal that season and the crowd was chanting Leblanc's name put unnecessary pressure on the club to select him. As for 2006, it goes without saying. Aside from those two seasons, I think our organization has done a terrific job at the draft podium though.
