I like your roster. The idea of using the 3.5+ we would spend for Leino and applying it to Madden and a checking winger with offensive potential is a very good one IMO.
I know it's not likely (because Detroit has cap room) but I'd love to go hard after Patrick Eaves instead of Ward.
Also, I like O'Donnell, but I feel like his age started to show as the season progressed. I like the idea of Shane O'Brien better if we can get him.
I would probably swap out Sestito for Holmstrom and maybe put Wellwood as the 13th forward and save a little bit of money in the process. Bury Shelley in the Minors.
