I heard that as well in the scouting reports, talented offensively, but.....then I saw him play and he was really good on the back check and positionally sound, plus he could anticipate the play so well. This is one of my reasonings to having Giroux at center too, he is not only positionally sound, but he anticipates the play so well, he knows where the puck is going on the defensive end and can anticipate the play and break it up.

Leino has some size, he may not be the most physical player but JvR has yet to show he is a big physical player either.
