Theres a big difference.
Leino - bad contract and he is a mediocre player.
Parise - will probably be overpaid but he is an elite winger.
What hurts more, paying 4.5 mil a year for a garbage 25 point player or paying ~7.5 a year for a 75+ point winger? Adding Zach Parise to this team makes it a lot better regardless of his cap hit. Leino is just garbage at 4.5 a year, I cannot fathom that we have him for 5 more years
I remember trying to defend him when he was signed on the main boards but they were all right about him, he is garbage and has no motivation anymore, why should he when he is guaranteed 4.5 a year for 5 more years? I have never seen a bum like him fall down or hold one Hand on the stick as much as him.... Hopefully on 7/1, Regier corrects this mistake by adding Parise or Semin.
