I thought he showed a lot of "smarts" with his work along the boards and in the cycling game, just... well, you can be as smart as you want at that, but in the NHL you're going to have to be able to absorb a good bit of punishment doing it, and my fear was that Leblanc wasn't going to be able to survive with that as his forte in the NHL. Now... it's just not clear where his forte is going to be. He has to gain strength and be willing to hustle constantly, and if he does that, he'll be fine for an NHL career IMHO (somewhat like a Chris Higgins, with some notable differences). But those aren't givens at this point. Nothing to do but sit back and see what he does next year in Hamilton.
