where are those who were claiming that people were only saying he was injured as an excuse now?

He could work on lower body strength.

In hockey, have strong legs, the rest will follow. Still young. Told you so about his major injury. The guy was cooked early December. Kudos to him for making the junior squad despite his jello-like shoulder. Heatlhy, the guy would have had over 90-100 points.

They'll stay quiet until they find another reason to bash Leblanc. Look at post #7 of this thread, appearntly some won't even care that he had an injury that required surgery.

I was thinking the same thing. Lower body strength is crucial. Hopefully he gets a speedy recovery.

You need your shoulders to hold the weight for squats. One of the best leg building exercises..

I remember some people mentioned he didn't look right and I wasn't sure. They called it. Explains why he wasn't even sat on the Hamilton bench.

Does everyone agree that he should be playing in Hamilton next season? It would be nice if he made a speedy recovery and was at 100% next September, but I'm not convinced he's ready for the AHL yet. I'm hoping someone who has been following him closely can tell me with absolute certainty that he's ready for Hamilton, otherwise, he needs to bulk up more and continue adapting to the busy schedule. Let's not forget this was his first "full" season, he played something like 30 games in college and I'm sure it wasn't much more than that in Midget.

Hope he'll recover in time for the pre-season.

He played 63 games in 2008-09 (his draft year). That's only a few less games than he played this year.

Even arthroscopic surgery has a long recovery time before returning to contact sports, depending on what kind of repairs need to be made.

I'm facing similar surgery myself in September, with a torn labrum and rotator cuff injury sustained in a hockey game, and was told to expect 4-6 months before returning to play.

I used to play on the same hockey team as Louis when I was 9-10, and one of the things I remember most about him, is that when we lost, you could see like disappointment/anger/sadness in his eyes. Like this kid, would do anything to win. I think his passion for the game is exemplified in this thread in the fact that he was able to not only still play, but be an effective player for his team scoring and more than 1PPG pace.

I would keep in with the Juniors next year, and let him play healthy and really hope that he can dominate. Then bring him up the year after to the Bulldogs for 1 year or so. By that time, he will have put on some more weight/muscle and I tihnk he will be ready for the big show by that point.

You don't send back NHL 1st rounders back to junior at 20. He belongs in Hamilton where he can play against grown men every night and learn the pro game.

Awesome story but to be honest I think it would just stunt his development. Let him try his hand at men's hockey for a bit in the AHL. I don't doubt his ability and I think he'd be fine.
