Leino has played in 3 NHL seasons during which he's played for 3 NHL teams. I'm not getting my hopes up about him becoming a very good player, but there's no reason to think he's incapable of finding a useful role as a good player. If he played all of last season between Vanek and Pommers we wouldn't be having this conversation. That's not to say he wouldn't have been a disappointment, but I'm sure he'd have put up the requisite points.
