Just because he played NHL games does not mean that he is a surefire top prospect that should rank 5th out of our pool. There's a lot of guys in it that have a higher upside than Leblanc and are younger, naturally they will take precedence in a poll over a guy who has a sophomore in the AHL should have done more to help his team.

We know that we have a skinny bean pole kid who has yet to differentiate himself from his peers with any skill. A guy who, despite the injuries in the play-offs, did not make his way into the line-up over a guy like Blunden.

Leblanc didn't have a shoulder injury last year, he had an ankle sprain, that's fine, but that's only an excuse for so long. As for the personal attack on the posters voting, I think that really hurts the credibility of your argument.
