Next year, he'll have to be a serious candidate to make this team. And this, is all about how he's progressing this year. Hence the "same timeframe".
You put Leblanc and Beaulieu in the same timeframe, i.e., show me that you're NHL ready this year or else?

Seems kind of screwy to have a forward drafted in 2009 and a defenseman drafted in 2011 have the same deadline for development? Yes, yes, we all know you want to see progression, but what is not clear is the level of progress that is acceptable and whether or not that acceptable level of progress might on the subjective side of things.
