They're both successful. The trade certainly has not hurt Detroit any. Could they be a better team with Leino in their lineup? Maybe, but how much causality to be want to drum up for the sake of this argument? It's not worth the headaches.
Based on the cap situation.... there is no way Leino is a Red Wing today. He wasn't playing well there, and they had to waive someone at the time. He was the guy.
