LeBlanc is really working. Since he was sent down, 8 points in 4 games.
Huge improvement over last year. Hopefully he can play bottom six. This allows either Moen or Prust to move up when necessary.
I'm open to Leblanc taking his spot, that said. Leblanc will have to prove he can play regularly in the NHL before that. Although Desharnais doesn't block shots and what have you, at least he can play a puck possession game. Defense isn't all about playing in your own end.
