This is ridiculous. Way to mount the pressure on the kid RDS... It's not even the regular season yet and he makes the headlines... when he doesn't score? What's next? "Leblanc prend sa première dou.che dans le vestiaire du Junior"? "Leblanc a un dégagement refusé"?
Atleast I guess he will be used to the Montréal media machine by the time he turns pro, that is if he does turn pro and doesn't crumble under the massive pressure being put on him already.
So what's worse, RDS reporting it or you starting a thread about it?
Personally I like to hear how our top prospects are doing, I was happy when TSN reported on how he was doing at the Canadian Juniors camp (BTW nobody complained then about TSN reporting on a meaningless scrimmage). I am happy that RDS is telling me how he is doing in the Q and hope they continue.
1. What do you mean by front page news? You give their developers far too much credit here. There is no front page news on rds.ca. It's a random feed of sports news and the one that's on top gets displayed.
2. If you go in the QJMHL section you get a lot of front page news like this one.
3. Wait... What do you mean by Leblanc didn't "score" ?
What, he didn't score? Trade him to Tampa Bay nooooow!
I agree that this will be a pain. Will likely have an article on every single one of his games until the real Habs season start. Then it will only be when he scores a goal. Or an assist. Or makes a hit.
Well if they want to give us say Connelly or Hedman... Sure!
Leblanc a justement perdu patience en milieu de deuxième période, jeudi soir, après qu’il ait reçu un bâton près du visage devant le filet des Foreurs. Une mêlée entre les 10 joueurs a suivi et trois d’entre eux ont été expulsés de la rencontre. Sur la séquence, le numéro 20 a écopé d’une pénalité mineure pour rudesse et une majeure pour s’être battu.
Probably why he didn't score. Although I don't think he was thrown out.
