I know it happens in every draft to every team but had the draft not been in Montreal or had there not been so much pressure to draft a local French Canadian player by French media and fans maybe just maybe Montreal ends end with Kris Kreider......

As it stands now Leblanc is sucking it up in the AHL another wasted 1st round pick!
Wel... Beside I would say O'Reilly, Leblanc could still very well become better or more usefull than the others. They're all still very young.
