Does Leino Stay for the Remainder of his Contract?

We were all underwhelmed by Ville's entire first year in the blue and gold. He wasn't all that good in any one aspect of the game, so many of us have called for the buyout.

But then came his return from injury this year. In his 3 games (small sample size), he's really looked like a player who deserves his 4.5 mil salary. Not only does he look more comfortable under a new coach, but he seems to have "adjusted" to our style of play. His skating and puck possession are a strength, and he's benefitting from getting minutes with Hodg/Pom. We'll have to see how the rest of the season goes, but we may have spoken too soon when we called for a buyout. Leino looks like he really wants to be here, and be a key member of the team. If he can keep up this level of play, I have no problem with keeping him in the top 9.

What do you think?
