This is what playoff stories are made out of. I mean I don't if hell play in the playoffs but Roenick made his name in the playoffs before he really played reg season games. c'mon Drew I the specs on him are his hands and vision are spectacular.
So we want to introduce players in the playoffs rather than priming them in the last games before? As someone said yesterday, that is an asinine idea.
It gives LeBlanc an opportunity to show some of his game before he becomes an RFA this summer. If he looks like he belongs, it will give him some bargaining power. Pirri will have a chance to put his name on the Cup this year, but LeBlanc will not. I hardly see how Pirri is being shortchanged here.
The good news about these two players is that in all likelihood, Dave Bolland is expendable. We have more capable centers than we have roster spots for.
