    Who is the better prospect?

    Who will have the better, more offensive career?

    What are the strengths and weaknesses of each?

    Yes, it's for a keeper fantasy hockey league :)

    Leblanc easily.

    I don't see the upside in Morin other people do. He's got a good shot. That's about it.

    Hawk fan here, so I'm gonna go with who I know.

    Morin.

    Morin's strength are his shot, ability to get open, and his overall offensive ability. His weaknesses (which are improving, and have improved quite a bit) are his skating, and defensive play.

    I would suspect that Jeremy Morin on a line with Toews and Kane or Hossa next season would be able to do some damage offensively.

    He looked very good in his call-ups this season, and didn't look out of place at all. He has an NHL shot, very hard and accurate and a great one-timer.

    Morin will probably be a bit better offensively, but Leblanc will be more of the complete player and used in more situations..

    Morin will definitely be the better offensive player.

    LeBlanc more of a 2-Way center.

    My initial response was to pick Morin.....but I say Leblanc.
    Having to play under the Bowmans could be career suicide for a young player. Scotty Bowman would kill a young players career if it means an extra pat on the back for him. I just about choked when I saw Bowman drop the puck at the recent WJHC.

    I know I'll ruffle a ton of feathers with that statement above but I'll stand 100% behind it!

    :laugh::laugh::laugh:......Considering Stevie Y was a 10 year veteran with over 700 games under his belt before Bowman showed up in Detroit!

    I think Leblanc will be the more complete player. Probably a number two centre.

    Morin is a scorer and in the Chicago system he may be best primed to play now on one of Chicago's top lines with the likes of Kane, Sharp, Toews etc.

    For fantasy i would take Morin because he is ready now and will play in a top six role, possibly next season.

    Leblanc will be brought a long slowly and could be better. But Morin is the safe choice.

    Not a Morin fan at all. Don't think he has any real hockey smarts and is a relatively limited player, overall. He's got a great shot but that's about it, unfortunately.

    If Morin actually puts it together he might outscore Leblanc. I would be surprised, but he's got the offensive potential to do damage in the right situation.

    HOFers Ken Dryden, Larry Robinson, Steve Shutt, Bob Gainey and Guy Lafleur did pretty well coming up under Bowman I understand.
