Based on what I've heard from Red Wings fans here (which I'll admit are not the most reliable sources), he just wasn't hacking it and looked lazy on the ice. If those opinions are unfounded, then color me excited to see Leino keep up the hard work. I was very happy to see how hard he worked for us last year, I just hope he can keep it up.
