I agree, but we can't lament that we don't have a 1.000 batting average with 1st round picks, it's irrational.

When Leblanc was drafted, it was thought he could become an effective, two-way, 2nd line center, a Plekanec-type player, a reasonable ceiling for an 18th overall selection. It didn't work out, ok, whatever, not every pick does.

Leblanc was preceded by the McDonagh and Pacioretty picks, and succeeded by the Tinordi and Beaulieu picks.
