While I can understand both these sentiments, we still played very crapily for more than half of the last game. It's great that we came back and won, but Laviolette better not let up on these guys. They're still not playing a full 60, or even 40 minutes out there. These are extremely important games mind you and if he feels Leino isn't ready for the Flyers system yet then I'll agree with his choice. But if he sees one guy dogging it, not playing to the full of their ability in this game, he better put Leino in faster than you can say antidisestablishmententaranism (sp?). Leino has something to prove if he wants to stay in the NHL and hopefully he is showing that in practice.
