I don't think Leino or Laich is gonna give the offensive production that I think we need from our 2nd line. I don't think Leino and Laich are anything more that maybe 50 something point guys on the Canucks. Yes they might add an element of grit and toughness but tbh, I think they're barely upgrades over Raymond and I think we'll end up overpaying.
Gagne would be my choice, except that he's so injury prone. I still think he'd be the best one to roll the dice on. Both Leino and Laich are likely gonna go for upwards of 4.25 mil. If we can get Gagne on the cheap for a deal around maybe 3-3.5 mil I'd say go for it. Assuming he doesn't get injured, at worst you have similar production to both Leino and Laich and at best you have a potential 60-70+ point scorer.
