Holmgren isn't Burke, he wouldn't have re-signed Leino and then throw him under the bus in the media. You wouldn't have heard about it if that were the case.

I guarantee a fair share of players (who in their career have yet to be paid decent bucks) would have answered differently. I think it's awesome on Leino. I think your theory is a tad cynical, and that's coming from a huge cynic
