The singular game on the fourth line was "punishment" for his garbage play in the previous games. Even then he was on the top line before the night was finished. They were Desharnais type "demotions".

Ian Schultz now playing in the "CHL". I don't know this league. He has 1 goal in three games.

Central Hockey League. Most folks would say it's a tier below the ECHL, though the drop off in quality isn't as steep as it is, say, from the AHL to the ECHL.

Either way, Schultz isn't part of our picture going forward.

We've called up Blunden and Holland and in 2 games, Leblanc is at the top of the stats....I guess we could have said the same thing about Leblanc 1 week ago....something we can't say now? We'll see in the long run. Can I be wrong? Absolutely. Never said I never was. But I have tons of confidence that this kid will be able to be a NHL'er? A perfect one? Nope. Mostly offensive and PP specialist. But we'll see.
You can have boners for certain guys, nothing wrong about it.

It's the constant harping on that's grating, and the flailing arms about and the you'll-see-he's-going-to-outplay-Crosby-and-Stamkos bullcrap an'all that.

I'm by no means a regular on this forum but every two post I read from you is about Kristo and how Bergevin goofed up by trading him.

I had a few....I guess you were just unlucky. By the way, I guess you also missed the postS where I said that despite the *****, I wasn't totally against the trade as I see Thomas as a good player....but that wasn't a need since we are already way too small and if Kristo HAD to be traded, we should have gone for needs like we did at the last draft.

But if you'd be a regular on the forum, you'd see that every 2 posts is not about Kristo. Not anymore. I think that for a guy who kept watching that prospect for 4 FULL years, probably more than every Q prospects I'm supposed to be biased towards, when the trade, I gave myself the right to discuss it and respond to posts who were talking about it. If people brings the good and the bad moves of Bergevin, I will have to say that while we still have no idea what Thomas is all about, that I believe that we had room for a guy who is fast, very offensive imaginative, improved his defensive and physical work. Yet, I'm somebody who do like answering to people....I could just pretend to not see those posts and do respect people enough to give some responses. The day that it goes sideways and out of respect, well then it's ignored. Until then, people will get my attention and my responses.

One thing I noticed in here is that people have a hard time putting things in perspective. There's a thread about a guy. I could write 20 times in it. And I can totally dislike a deal. And YET, we only discuss THAT subject. If in any of my posts, I ask for the GM's head on the spot...THEN yes, you are right....I'm overdoing it. But you can still feel strongly about a subject and STILL be able to move on to something else. To say that you almost only see posts about him from me do tell me you're not a regular and that you are a very selective reader.

Oh and I didn't say he'd outplay Crosby and whoever.....which is another trait of certain people who, for the sake of proving a point, they invent things to make it look worst than it actually is. Saying that you think that a said player would have helped us greatlty and that the "deal" might not be a good one is just saying this......it might not be a good deal and we could have aimed for something different...that's all.

Rookie mistake. Don't worry, it could happen to anyone.
With a little more experience you'll overcome this sort of thing.

Maybe I'm lost, I did not think Leblanc was playing with Dumont earlier in the season. Blunden is big and fast but he has not finish or hockey sense. He's not a bad guy to have on the fourth line but he is exactly the type of guy Leblanc won't have success with.

I honestly don't know if Lefebvre is an idiot or a genius. In his defense a lot of his moves challenge players and help their development, on the other hand a lot of his moves frustrate the players and make the team lose. If he keep smaking the weird moves but get the team to make a playoff run (they need the experience) I'll be happy he is there...

the lines have been all over the place in game. I've noticed Leblanc with Dumont on the PK together and he's had them on the same line at times. I think what happened was when Quailer came back, he was on the 4th line but I don't think he was getting a regular shift, so there was 4 lines but then he was moving players around from the top 9.

Blunden has looked good for the Dogs, Leblanc has been with Dumont a few times but I've noticed some very strange line combos but saw the same thing last year.

I'm also having a tough time of what to make with Lefebvre and his coaching staff, they put some odd lines together at times but the PP has finally picked it up and that imo is something they must improve upon consistently this year as they can't continue to struggle so badly with the man advantage. The PP has woken up but we'll have to see if it will last or not.

Leblanc scores again. Ghetto assists. Bulldogs up 2-0, Macenauer opened the scoring from MSP and Aliu.

I must say I didn't expect Andrighetto really put up points until after Christmas.

I'd like to see him play a stretch of around 20 ''good'' games (or better) before coming up so his confidence can be fully restored. He's up to 3 games. He also had 5 shots tonight.

But the Habs continue to lose a forward to injury once per game on average, so it may happen.

Dogs in first place, last year was tough. When Beau returns Dogs will have their own version of "the big 3"

Most likely.

Either way, sounds like they're a much better team who can constantly attack, defend and get timely saves.

I agree, let him stay there till midseason and get his confidence all the way back.

5 points in 7 games. Apparently he's played physical and done well.

Another good game by Leblanc. I really, really want him to succeed. Hope he keeps it up and gets the attention of MB and MT. Go Louis go!

Louis could really do himself a favor and the system one with a sparkling game today against Toronto Marlies. A real test playing three pro games in three nights and finishing the 3rd against their biggest opposition to leading the Division. Bergevin has done his part it's up to the team to step up and show they earned the NHL money for some and want that money for others. Go Dawgs Go!

Andrighetto has been the Bulldogs' best forward thus far, in my opinion. Leblanc has had very timely goals, but I don't feel he's been making the continuous impact that Andrighetto has. Andrighetto does something nearly every shift and never seems to turn the puck over, despite the fact that he always seems to have to puck on his stick. He's so dynamic and plays with a ton of intensity. I like how, despite his stature, he hovers around the crease and he wins the majority of his puck battles. While he isn't a Gallagher when it comes to physical play, he has absolutely no fear in his game. As someone who wasn't necessarily happy about the pick, I've been very surprised and completely impressed with his play.

He's been a pleasant surprise so far. He makes a terrific stretch pass and controls the puck well. The best part is that he's rarely made defensive mistakes. A bonus is his physical game, he has no problem laying the body. His transition period was almost non-existent, hopefully he keeps it up.

Dietz has been okay. I felt he struggled quite a bit at some times, others he looked very poised. At times he was too aggressive at forcing the play up the ice and got burned for it. Personally I would have kept him in the line up over Ellis, but Ellis has to play too. I haven't really noticed him in his three games, which is probably a good thing.

Its nice to see Leblanc doing good for once. He should get the next call up if he keeps up. Ghetto is only starting his pro career so he can we a bit still.

Dietz has missed the last couple games due to injury, that is why Ellis has played. Ellis is about 8th on the D depth charge
