However each times I praise a guy from Quebec, I will get a similar response than yours.

Weird phenomenon. Not offensive or anything.
Just plain weird.

My post had nothing to do with the mother tongue of the poster. Why are you so excited?


PS YourBuddy is the one who first mentioned the language "issue".

This situation is total BS or overblown. There's no credible source who has picked up the story, and some denied it (Ciccone and Gagnon). If it was true there would be a lot more talk about it. He's injured, he's having an off year but no way he's the scapegoat of all the habs org. There's too much incoherence with that story. Remember the breaking news of habs player being arrested at the airport for a mafia story? I think people should understand the amount of bs coming out of quebec medias sometimes.

It could also be damage control. Let say it the Filosa story is true. Is that the best thing that can happen to see that news out? Won't it be harsher on Leblanc that way? So the only think left is to say that it's completely false. Yet, we have no idea exactly what Leblanc said. Seems to say that he doesn't feel humiliated....but if that's all, it doesn't mean that he feels tons of confidence from them and don't believe he's not in the plans anymore. Anyway, like I said before, there has to be alittle bit of everything. Lefebvre might not be the greatest coach in the planet, but I would doubt he's the stupidest of them all.

I call mostly BS on the story, specifically no other media person has picked up on the story. That means they made calls and were assured it was best an embellishment at worst a fabrication.

Also Louis is represented by Pat Brisson. Does anyone think Brisson would let this occur?

Only reason Leblanc was drafted is because the Habs felt they had to get a French guy. The probably could have picked him up in 2nd round... What a waste of a pick that was!

So basically given statements by Leblanc himself this entire article was basically a fabrication. Who does this clown Filosa work for exactly and how is it that he can get away with this filth?

This is total nonsense and part of the bi-polarity of Habs fans. It's either we don't draft french players or he was only drafted because he's a french guy. Played 42 games in the NHL as a rookie. Do you think he suddenly forgot to play? Before declaring a prospect a bust - how about we give them 3-4 years of being a pro.

There was a photo taken of Trevor Timmins' sheet by RDS during the draft and if I remember correctly there were a lot of players on the list before Leblanc's name (they were drafted, so unavailable). The next IIRC, after Leblanc, was Jordan Schroeder, a manlet. Kadri was in a category called "acceptable". Leblanc was not drafted because he's from QC.

It sure raised hackles around here. I'm glad to see it's all BS - I wasn't impressed with Leblanc if it wasn't.

Hang in there Louis!

Anyways, we'll know more on Thursday I guess. The thing that gets to me with this report is that Filosa never got the organisation's point of view. And his interview is full of innuendos (i.e. the Brisebois thing). Shouldn't be tolerated.

I don't understand how Filosa can publish stuff like that. He's not new to the business..

I think it's been pretty much confirmed that the story isn't valid. I vote to have this thread closed.

I seriously don't understand how Filosa can get away with that. If this were the states he'd be sued for slander. Just brutal.

This is either the darkest day in Habs history or just sensationalist drivel from a boxing aficionado

Between an invalid article and the entire truth, there's probably something here. I doubt Filosa could write such things without having a clue (and I don't like how he's trying so hard to be controversial in general).

Maybe Leblanc is struggling to adapt to the AHL, but I doubt this is news worthy since it's pretty common for prospects.

I totally disagree, and I am someone who ALWAYS wants to draft BPA. Leblanc was BPA at the time, or at least can easily have been seen as that. This was NOT an off the chart pick, not at all.

And you know what? He will be an NHL player, solid. To have got .25 ppg last year without PP time as a 20 year old in the NHL, that is quite promising.
