We need goal scorers badly. Take a look at the UFA crop and you will all figure out that it's a weak group. It would be irresponsible to not make him an offer if the Wild don't qualify him. Let alone the fact he is local and a huge guy.
I'm of the opinion that it would be good for Leblanc to get good minutes in the AHL, so if it's between him and Lats I'd still be okay offering Lats a (not huge) contract. Worst case scenario is if he gets injured again he's on IR and doesn't count against the cap.
Fatendress? Really? Haven't we learned to stay away from players like him? Sure he's a big guy but he's missed how many games with a concussion?
Next he's french so you know if they don't play him the media will be going crazy. He's got a mouth on him as well and bashed the team/coach before, that's a no no in my book. Stay classy even if it's a messy break up.
Finally, he's always had weight issues. Do you really think bringing him back to the home of Poutine will help him? Not to mention all the groupies, parties in Montreal?
Just because a french player is available doesn't mean Montreal needs him. Montreal needs to change. We need players that put in constant efforts night in and night out. This guy would be a step backwards. A big gravy filled NO from this fan.
