And now Leblanc, will never be more than a low scoring third liner, not even a NHLer according to some. All that despite the fact that he looked good in the big league last year and has produced in every league he has played before.
It's as if as soon as a player struggles you all forget what they've done before and suddenly the worst stretch they've had in their career become's their ceiling.
Leblanc had an injury and is having a bad year. **** happens.
If there's one thing we should have learned from the Plekanec and Pacioretty experiences, it's that we shouldn't be so quick to write off a prospect that is intelligent and works hard.
In his first year with Bulldogs, Plekanec got 46 pts in 76 games, Pax got 29 pts in 37 games. Those stats are much better than this year Leblanc's stats.
In Jr, Leblanc got 58 pts in 51 games which is not great at all, if you compared against good players in Jr. The year before, he had 23 pts in 31 with Harvard university.
