Let him build confidence and work on his game. Give him the best opportunity to succeed possible. Sylvain has not been patient with him and hasn't given him a fair chance, no other prospect in our system is being treated like Leblanc (apart from Collberg). How is he supposed to produce on a 4th line? I think the expectations for Leblanc are ridiculous. It shouldn't be superstar OR AHL 4th liner.
Look at how bournival was still able to shine on a 4th line on the Habs... Now he's practicing. On the first. Even though he wasn't getting the most points, we still saw he was creating chances and was playing well. Leblanc just looks like crap on the 4th line... He really isn't showing much. If he showed that he's creating chances and making things happen and playing well, then he'll get a shot, till then, enjoy the 4th line.
