It bothers me that we're not giving this kid ice time to get him in gear. Last year he was recovering from an ankle injury and sucked. This year he's being punished for last year.
Its hard to do anything when you play 4th liner minutes and your team is never in possession of the puck. Not used on the PP or on the PK.
Don't know really. He was alright with the Habs 2 years ago, regressed last year due to an ankle injury and is in the dog house this year.
I would've called him up instead of Blunden. We already know what Blunden can do. Give Leblanc a chance to step up or get rid of him.
Think about why he's in the dog house though. Could it have to do with the following:
1-He's been pouting since being sent back
2-Not giving the effort a player in his situation should show.
3-Not showing the trait of character we would like to have from a player in his situation.
I don't know for you but I would not like to have someone like this on my team.
