Leblanc is a keeper and he needs to play a lot of minutes. Palushaj is an upcoming RFA: I think they want to have a good look at him before offering him a contract.

I'm glad to see LL go back to the A. Let him develop properly, it's his first year pro. The last thing we need to do is rush the few good prospects we have.

As for Boom Boom Jr. Jr., can't wait to get a look at him.

Remember Patches wanting to play in AHL more than 3 minutes a game in the NHL ?

Same thing now. It's better for him.

Agreed 100%. We don't benfit from LL up with the Big club in the long run. Yes, he's good enough to be comfortable in the NHL now, I can't wait to see what happens when he has the time to polish his game and get bigger/stronger/faster. LL could be a very good NHLer for us.

Would Palushaj have to clear waivers next year if sent down ? If he would then I think hes gone because I dont think hes shown enough to stick around, not yet anyway.

I agree with you regarding Palushaj: he needs to step his game up a notch. It is too soon to call him a bust but he is falling down our depth chart imo.

Among other things, I would like to see him drive the net à la Eller. I don't want him to necessarily crash the net but once he gets closer to the slot, he needs to let his killer instincts take control!

From the little I saw of him (NHL level), he seems to be a perimeter player.

Damn! I need to be more concise!

I agree, a completely useless player that is ahl or khl material.
