Its better to do a shorter deal 1-3 years at around 2.25 or 2.5 so Ville can prove consistency. I love Ville, and I want him to stay but hopefully he doesnt overvalue himself. He could have a lot of trouble trying to adjust to a new coach and new linemates if he left as a UFA
Yeah his chemistry with linemates can work both ways.

It's possible that Briere and Hartnell will suffer if Leino leaves ...... and equally likely that Leino himself will slump on a new team with new mates.... even if the new team is Pittsburgh and his new linemate is Corsby or Malkin lol!

Seriously, sometimes you click with certain players, and if you move to another line .. even if your new line has more talented players... you still dont click the same way.
