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
Haha maybe I am cynical. But I doubt you see a player who has yet to sign a contract, and has been offered few different options over the year, say that he would rather have signed a contract than win the Cup.

Leino doesn't seem like he wasn't to sign a contract at this point, and he wants to win the Cup. That question just seemed too perfect for him.
