Leino, from what I have seen, has a scoring touch.
He's not gonna put up 50 goals, but JVR and Giroux would both benefit from having a scorer on their line.
I'm cool with Leino starting over Asham or Leino being the 13th forward. I think Leino would do better but it wouldn't be a huge upgrade so either way. I think Powe should definitely not sit though. It should be Asham or no one.
He's not going to put up 10 goals.
I love Asham, I think he has nice hands, he's a good forechecker, he scraps, creates trouble, plays hard, works hard, hope we resign him, but he's really earned his spot.
He had a great year last year and started this season out on the bench, but did he complain? Nope, he just earned his spot back.
