He was actually not terrible in the 2nd like he was in the first. It's his first ever nhl game. You have to understand he is going to make mistakes, and not look great.
This third period has almost made me a believer. He'll be around next year.
Never said he was. He was bad in the 1st, and unnoticeable in the 2nd. Thus, forgettable first 40 minutes. Obviously, I'm not one to say a kid in his first NHL game sucks because he's nervous, which was clearly the case with LeBlah.
I'm not concerned about LeBlanc's ability to create offense, he's gonna be nervous, etc. What I'm concerned about is his skating. Seems like a very average to below average skater. Doesn't appear like top 6 skating ability
