He'd be perfect for the 3rd line, or the 3rd man on the totem pole for 2nd line, meaning just like Leino we would have to get a high scoring rw as well.
We have a scoring winger for the 2nd line. Mikael Samuelsson had 30 goals the season before last and managed 18 in an injury filled season last year. If the consensus is that we need two lines of PPG players, you're going to be let down. There is only so much puck to go around.
