With who? Brad Boyes? A too injured to produce Derek Roy? The slowest line ever with Adam and Kassian? He played with two decent players for the first 40 games, Ennis and Stafford, but not at the same time, and with an anchor on each line in the aforementioned Boyes and Roy.

Leino didn't do himself any favors but to argue that he was put in a position to succeed is asinine. Ennis/Leino-Leino/Ennis-Stafford should have been a line for the first half of the season, but it took Ruff 40-something games to put that combination together because he had to work "his son" back into the lineup.
