There's something going on between the organization and Leblanc. And at this point, it just doesn't smell good.

This is downright insulting to the guy. I don't agree with the decision at all. It's stupid.

I don't mind the cuts. I want to see the big boys lineup right now anyway.

That would be childish, it would mean that he doesn't get the same treatment than the other players.

Sad to see Leblanc go, but honestly I don't get the overreaction.

He'll be back soon enough. He needs to show some character (yes, that term) and play good in the AHL first.

There has to be more to this cut. A former 1st rounder who played decent tonight, came to camp ready and he gets cut before many other players? Does not add up.

So we'll have to wait a complete year before considering Leblanc in the NHL? He came in and outplayed almost every other prospects/AHL forwards not named Bournival in camp.

Yeah but what should matter is who has been the better player in the LAST week.

Leblanc on Plek's line is a much better fit than Thomas.

No point to cut Leblanc at this point, unless the plan is to break his confidence once again.

The guy is done in this organization. He'll be traded for a bust in the making.

He doesn't have an old self... he has had one good year and one bad year in the pros. I hope he takes the attitude that he wants to prove management wrong and really lights it up in the AHL

Maybe...they actually need Leblanc in Hamilton to get the season off right?

Really? One week's work is worth more than a year of work?

Odd with the LL cut, clearly sending a msg, not sure if that's good or bad, because he was good out there tonight.

I don't think LL is going to he more than a 3rd liner, and I haven't seen much of him in the AHL but every time I watched him at and NHL level, he has always been good, nothing wow, but making smart plays, winning puck battles along the board.

Even last year during that 1 pre season game, Habs vs Habs, LL looked good in that game even tho he was being benched in the AHL.

Maybe it's his high IQ, or that since being drafted he was had a different team/coach every year, sometimes 3 different coaches in 1 year. But for me he never looks out of place, expect for Ham last year, but I didn't see him of much him there.

Would've still made sense to give him at least one more game, he was looking sharp out there. I just hope he'll have a good season with the dogs.

LeBlanc has been one of the best looking Habs since camp started and he was arguably their best forward tonite, cutting him now is ridiculous

The only way I can make sense out of Leblanc being cut is that if the org deems that he was fighting with Bournival for a spot. But that would be a bit dumb, considering LL plays RW (and C), while Bournival plays LW (and C).

But even then, why keep Thomas?

It's just confusing about Leblanc considering others who stayed. Why not an extra game?

I am not against Leblanc but this is being blown out of proportion. He is still in the organization and still has a great opportunity to be a Hab. It depends on how he handles this and there may be factors at work that we know nothing about.

As I said, I hope he plays hard and literally forces the team to recall him from Hamilton sooner rather than later.

Leblanc cut? Thomas still up? are we trying to collect the smallest forwards top 6 in the NHL?

It's not like Thomas had an amazing season either... Leblanc in his rookie season was on pace for more points than him. Leblanc's defensive game is a lot better, he wins a good portion of is battles and he's average sized. We already have Briere and Gallagher on the RW, no need to replace our small captain with another small player.
