As for Leino, he certainly has a bad contract but its hardly is bad as some go on about it.
-His cap hit isn't even in the top 100 (tied for 104th).
-His actually salary (6mil) is currenty tied for 51st in the league but will drop quite a bit next year when it goes down to 4mil (it would put it roughly in the 130s overall).
-On the Sabres he is 5th in cap hit and actual salary.
The way a few go on about Leino you would think he is the highest paid Sabre and one of the top paid players in the game.
I saw in an early post that someone felt he would need to produce a 30g 80pt season to be worth his deal. How did they come to that conclusion? If he is a 15-20g 50ish pt player that plays well in the playoffs going forward, he will justify his deal (Basically his last season in Philly).
