Not even close, those two are known for being hard hitters, Leblanc doesn't hit anyone.

Give him time...it's wayyyyy too soon. What we know is that he does have the skills to become a good offensive player. He's also a hard worker.

And beside, Pacioretty looks like he'll be a second line player, Kostitsyn is a top 6 player, and Higgins was pretty damn good before his weird downfall...

Louis Leblanc, Canada — The human international voltage converter showed he could become the Montreal Canadiens' Great Quebecois Hope rather soon, probably with a minimal AHL apprenticeship. Leblanc, 19, showed he can plays heads-up at a high pace and made whatever linemates he was with better over the course of the tourney. Many felt Canada should have double-shifted the former Harvard man in the final when it was starting to lose control of the game to Russia.
I think he has been on the ice for 2 of the 3 first Russians goals.. not saying it was his fault but still..

Because it's just that easy to get a first liner with mid-low firsts. Who would you have taken instead of Leblanc?
