Obviously, Leino's shootout attempt left a bit to be desired, but those were two beauty passes. I hope he gets an extended chance with Grigs and Ott. I think Ott's crash-the-net style will benefit Leino, and it'll help to have a linemate in Grigs who thinks the game at a similar level. I think that'll be really effective cycling line.
People are going to bash Leino just to bash his contract. I thought he looked quite good in the clips I saw.
The mishandled PS should only suggest that he'll not be on Ruff's early list of shooters going into the season... nothing more.
Interesting to hear people say Stafford didn't look that good. I thought Enroth made two pretty nice saves on him during the scrimmage. Of course, I didn't see the whole scrimmage, but it looked like he had bursts.
I gotta admit I was too focused on Grigorenko in the clips to notice much of anything else and will have to watch again later, but there were certainly chances for more goals; off the top of my head, Pominville, Ott and Myers all had chances/half-chances.
