That certainly wasn't the problem with Leblanc's development.

I grew up playing with a player who shared some ice-time with Andrighetto over the past 2 seasons on the Huskies and he raved about how dominant of a player Sven was when I talked to him before the draft. Was pretty pumped when the Habs then drafted him and have high hopes for him!
Thats good to hear. Lets cross our finger and we found a top 6 jewel here.

It depends how you look at it. I don't think the Habs even gave him a real chance.

Imo with injuries and his development he was never good enough to be brought up.

Collberg has not proven anything yet. With Gionta and Briere gone soon, I have no problem having Andrighetto on one of our top two lines.

Leblanc upside was always 3rd line checking forward who could fill in on a 2nd line. Kind of like a Higgins.

Sven's upside is top 6 scoring winger. He got 74 pts as a rookie in the Q at 18, and 98 pts at 19. LL got 59 pts and 100 PIM as a 19 year old rookie in the Q. Not to mention Sven is already outproducing LL on the same team despite being 2 years younger.

Very different players. The problem with LL is he's too weak physically to be an effective checking forward in the NHL.

Leblanc was always pegged as becoming a complimentary forward with good defense. He was never looked at as someone who could put up a ton of points on his own. He never had above average puck skills or offensive instinct.

Well, it's kind of true. Leblanc was picked based on projections from his PPG USHL season, while Andrighetto was picked based on projections of his 2 PPG QMJHL season. In Leblanc's 19/20 year old season, he was just over PPG in the QMJHL by comparison (so roughly half the offensive output at the cusp of turning pro). Just a matter now of whether or not Ghetto plateaus/stagnates to the same degree as Leblanc. I never saw much of Leblanc until he hit the Q, but I think Sven looks like a more "gifted" player at the common intermediary step(s). Smaller is always an issue, though, even if it's eventually overcome by a hard-working player.

Is Andrighetto clearly better than Leblanc or Thomas in Hamilton ? Or is it debatable ?

Not defensively better than leblanc when he's on, but offensively, yeah. Whenever ghetto gets the puck on his stick, something happens.

And did you see that Gallagher only played about 30 games with the dogs with equal amount of points and never missed a beat with the Habs.
There is no such thing as ruining a players career by keeping him in the AHL for too long.. look at the Red Wings and how their prospects are always NHL ready and know their role?

Leblancs problem was his development. He went to the USHL, then the Q one year and then went to the AHL. The reason he is what he is now is because the organization guided him poorly and let him do what he pleased.

He played on three different leagues too soon and all of them have a different sort of game. He had no true role. He could have maybe been a 3rd liner with 2nd line flashes, but now he's more of a 4th liner with 3rd liner flashes.

The reason why Bergevin is keeping him in the AHL is for him to find a role and know what to do once he's called up. Although, I don't know if Lefebvre is capable of doing that.

Top end of the prospect pool because he is the most ready to step in.

Since when do we have Collberg as a sure thing? The kid hasn't proved anything yet at the pro level in NA and nothing suggests he'll succeed at this level

You certainly did not typed his name in the Google search bar. The firste page found:

http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p...php?pid=143315

It says that we drafted him #86 overall of the 2013 entry draft.

The draft was unusually deep that year. As for Leblanc, I think he was a bone thrown to the growling les partisans.

Even our own prospect ranking didn't have him in the top 10, i don't think, which is something that I imagine would change were we to vote again today.

Gonna try and dig up our last rankings.

So we had him at 16 before the year started. I could definitely see him moving up to around the 8-12 mark now.

Easily top 5-7 now. Thomas never should have been top 15 to begin with. McCarron will fall massively. Ghetto is better than all the guys between 8-14. Leblanc will likely be traded and if not won't be inside the top 10 or even close next year. In a make or break year he broke.
