- Good teammate
- Experience: been to the Stanley Cup finals twice and one it once
- slow skating, shot blocking defender who will defend his teammates
- big hair
- solid Tweets
- stabilizing presence for the younger defensemen. I have been saying all along that one verteran and 5-6 rookie d-men is not a recipe for success in any league.
For the veteren scoring aspect of the bulldogs, it seems as though Bergevin was depending heavily on Leblanc (not a vet, but still a second year ahl player who produced well in his first season), Palushaj and Geoffrion to carry the load. Geoffrion and Leblanc went down early. We'll see how Bergevin reacts on this front. Would be nice to get a vet so we don't have the three rookies playing together (Bournival, Holland and Gallagher). Would like them to be split up and get some ice time with decent ahl vets who can produce.
Nice move by Bergevin, now i would like a veteran forward who could center Gallagher, a bit like Keith Aucoin is doing with Kadri, it can only be beneficial for his development and confidence to start putting more points on the board even if he is carried a little bit.
