H I/O is saying "Leblanc isn't 100 percent", so he may have the flu and they are sending him to hamilton like they sent Beaulieu to Hamilton and then recalled him the next day.

I don't get this move he actually looked decent.
I guess White will be back soon and they gonna keep 8 d-men.

Leblanc was then the obvious one to cut.


As long as the Habs are carrying overpaid garbage players, there will be no place for our youngsters in Hamilton.

Being sent down does not automatically means that the player is physically going to Hamilton.

Yes. That is what I'm suggesting.

So this is Bergevin's big move to shake up the troops?

He had the flu this morning ... or was that "He has to flew (back to hamilton to join our minor league groups)".

I hope white is back, it must have sucked for him watching the past games. He is consistently one of the most passionate players on the Habs

From what I've seen he's a great guy too off the ice

Leblanc showed good things when he was called this season but he still got 0 pt. He's putting the effort but the results are not there.

Results are not there for the whole team, not just him.

I'm not. Not happy with how they're using him, but Bournival will be a great third liner on this team for years.

He's pretty much played with 4 liners at 5-9 minutes a night, not what you'd call a real "chance". I think they are planning to move a few bodies at the deadline or before and some young guys would get their chance...

LeBlanc Bournival(top 9) Andrighetto(possibly) Beaulieu Pateryn and Tinordi

possibly

Diaz Murray Bouillon Briere Bourque(though a contract would come back) and Gionta possibly moving.

I think it is safe to say that Bournival has far more upside than Leblanc at this point. I think Leblanc is moving ever-closer to "bust" status and his NHL career is hanging by a thread.

Pretty clear to me he's an NHLer, actually. Remains to be seen if he can keep up his play from his callups, but were he to, he'd be outplaying most of the third and 4th lines on this team.

I don't see it, look at their AHL stats at 20. Bourival had a hot streak early on but has been zero offensively since. 25-30 point 3rd or 4th liner is his upside right now. LeBlanc has better hands if you give him linemates he will produce. Better HS also. Only area Bourival is better is skating.

There is too much "jack of all trades, master of none" with Leblanc. I do not see a clear role for him. He was supposed to be a top 6 forward, then that changed to a checking forward,.... what next? Somebody please tell what role they see him in. Whether it is our organizational mismanagement, or whether the kid was overdrafted (hindsight, I know), everyone was expecting more from him.

Biggest problem with the Habs forwards the last 20 years: too many of the same "types" of players on the roster that are middling to solid in skill, but do not excel at anything specific. Look at the makeup of our 2nd and 3rd lines for Pete's sake - it is like a turnstile in regards of who fills out those lines...... no identity what so ever.

Hard to call it but I think Bourni might have the better career. Bourni's got more jam and if Leblanc is more skilled and has more HS than it's not by much.

Either way I like both as bottom 6ers at the moment. If used properly they could probably give us some secondary scoring but 'used properly' is a luxury we can't afford apparently.

Winning teams have "jack of all trade" types.

If a player can only play a specific role then it's harder to fit in the lineup. LeBlanc is a guy that should be able to play on an offensive or more of a checking line, kill penalities, solid in the corners and along the boards, center or wing.

I really think that this guy is burn. Too many up and down from NHL to AHL is never good for a young player with some hockey IQ like Leblanc. Hope i'm wrong!
