Louis Leblanc, huh?

He better be ready for what's coming his way
Seems like the Canadiens are going to give Louis Leblanc a shot while Max Pacioretty sits out his three-game suspension. Wow, I really didn't see this one coming. I didn't think they'd throw Leblanc to the wolves this early. I thought they would leave him in Hamilton for the entire season, regardless of how well he did.

Physically, can Leblanc stand up to the punishment at the NHL level? We'll see. Give the former first rounder credit. He does have 10 points this season in 14 games. Not too shabby.

As a right shot, I am wondering what they'll do with him. Will they play him with Desharnais and Cole? If so, you can kiss those Cole offwing rushes good bye, as he'll have to switch over to the other side.

What should happen is Andre Kostitsyn should get the time with Cole and Desharnais.

I don't know. I just don't think this is a good idea. There is just so much pressure on the kid to live up to his top pick billing. The Habs normally don't rush players up, so they must figure he can really help them now and has overachieved down on the farm. We'll see.

Brew some coffee. The Canadiens west coast games just got a whole lot more intriguing.
