I'd say THAT season is the anomaly in Leino's career, not this one.
Not counting last season, Leino has played 181 games and scored 32 points. 15 goals.

Sure, he's a bit better than 12 points in 40 games, but not much better. He's a 15+20 guy that wound up in a perfect situation to get paid.
Perfect chemistry? Let us not forget how poor of a season hartnell had in 09-10. him ville and briere caught fire that playoffs, then they were able to bring it over to the next season. This is professional hockey, its not like they just got lucky from chemistry. Each player can play. Ville has just not had a good year and im sure it will change.
