glad to see the kid earn a call-up, and judging from what's been said about his play in the AHL, the call-up is deserved.

while I'm fine with JM putting him on the 4th line and using him sparringly, I do hope he gets himself at least a taste of playing with some of our top-9 players.

I hope you realize that we're missing three forwards: Patches, Gomez & White.

Go to most teams in the NHL and remove three players from their playing roster and see what you get.

So that's 71, 72, 74, 75, 76 and 79...not your father's Habs, that's for sure

The irony is that the very first time I saw Leblanc play, in his draft year in the USHL, the first person I thought of was Ribeiro as LL wore #71 in the USHL, both were skinny offensive players.

Perhaps they are trying to pay homage to the best decade ever for the Habs just without the disco!

LL got pushed around at the WJC last year, I'm sure he will get pushed around against NHL'ers this year - but so does Palushaj, who I assume is Leblanc's competition for a spot right now. Hopefully LL can make up for it with speed, tenacity and smarts.

You didn't watch the World Juniors did you? Certainly doesn't play like a toothpick, but by all means continue to base your opinions on height and weight.

Ummm RBC, he didn't say he played like one Roulin did. Just that he looks like one. People must stop thinking everyone has it in for the next francophone hero.

RDS has him at 184 lbs in their article. I don't think peoples that follow his camps has him 15 lbs more than he is.

Not everybody look the same at the same weight. An exemple : I'm 6'0 165lbs and got comment that I look almost 180 lbs, while I have a friend who is 6'1 and 195 lbs and look like a toothpick

Too much too soon to expect Leblanc to be an NHL regular at this point. Hopefully it's just a three-game cup of coffee and he doesn't get hurt.

IMO he remind me a lot of the Chris Higgins that we had.

Haha don't get me wrong i like his two way game, and i'm sure he will have a good short stint. But i just am not too excited about hearing the Bergerons of this world as they try to push this young lad on an already highly expectant fanbase.

At least Habs organization have the option to put him in the AHL if he doesn't live up to it. It's way better than the Latendresse case.

I would do

Moen - Plekanec - Gionta
Cammalleri - DD - Cole
Kostitsyn - Eller - Leblanc
Darche - Noke - Palushaj

or

Kostitsyn - Plekanec - Gionta
Cammalleri - DD - Cole
Moen - Eller - Leblanc
Darche - Noke - Palushaj

I prefer the second lineup cauz Kosty might wake up Plekanec, who is not playing great lately even though he has been pilling up points.

That should be record. They should sign Ryder too.

Actually, what he said was that, Leblanc was 160, and therefore would "get pushed around more easily than Grabovski in his rookie season". And if he, or Roulin for that matter, knew anything about Leblanc other than his height and weight, they wouldn't have said that. The sentence "He got pushed around at the WJC" is the farthest thing from the truth, he was one of Canada's best players on the forecheck and in the corners.

And language has nothing to do with any of this.

Hopefully we get to see him in a top 6 role. I hate it when teams call up smaller skilled guys and play them 4 minutes of even strength hockey on a bottom line.
