Players who "turn it on" in the playoffs usually come at bargain prices because at the negotiating table it is easy for the GM to cite 40 points/80 regular season games as a more indicative view of a player's worth and 20 points in 20 playoff games as a 'small sample size'. Not to mention over half the league makes the playoffs anyway, so the regular season is very diminished in the NHL.
Fernando Pisani turned a good playoff run into a very problematic contract for the Oilers...

Leino looks like he's still getting up to speed.
