I would do that trade.
I don't see L. Leblanc making any real impact at the NHL level, especially after his AHL season last year. He struggled since his injury, much like K.Chipchura did. Chipchura was supposed to pan out into so much more than what he is now, much like Leblanc.
S.Colberg looked great at the WJC and is an intriguing prospect. He won't be helping the Habs any time soon, though, as he returned to play in Europe. He is unfortunately another undersized winger, though, and we have an abundance of those, with more drafted this past draft.
The pick could be anywhere - how can you gauge a squad that goes from the bottom on the league to the top in one season? Which result was the fluke and which is closer to reality?
Bobby Ryan brings a lot more to Montreal than Danny Briere, who aside from his age and declining skills, snubbed his nose at this franchise and hung up the phone on the greatest player to ever play the game. But now that nobody else wants him, reverses on all that to ink a deal.
