IMO, Leblanc is a very talented player and we should be training him as a 2nd/3rd line center.

Make him the 1st line center in Hamilton, give him good wingers, like say Blunden and Holland, or Kristo and Holland next year, and play him 20-22 minutes a game in all situations.

We're stacked at center but that could change. Galchenyuk is our 1st line center of the future but he could be injured at any time. Plekanec could be gone soon. DD I expect to be gone soon or to be converted to wing. Eller... I expect to be a good player, but Leblanc could become better.

At the start of next season, after he has put on 5-10 lbs of muscle in the offseason, when Leblanc is healed, give him a good 30 or 40 games with Holland and Kristo as linemates, let them roll, and see what they can do.

No more Tenute and no more Chaput please.
