Lehoux - why are we even keeping this guy as a "top offensive" prospect? ugh, i'm so frustrated with him!


The thing is, his defense sucks. Both last year and this year Lehoux has been playing on the third line to learn the defensive game. I heard that for a week or so last season, Boudreau even played the guy as a defenseman!

Apparently, Ebay had the same problem. His offensive skills were incredible, but his defense sucked, so he played exclusively on the third line in the minor leagues just to feel what it was to be part of the "stopper" or "energy" units.

The amount of points Lehoux has this year are very good when you take into consideration the fact that he's spent most of the season on a line with Jeff Guilano and Dan Welch! LoL! BTW, he's injured and has missed the last two weeks and will probably miss the next two weeks. Broken finger?
