Other than size and "leadership" Leopold brought nothing that Russell couldn't. Russell's puck management and defensive zone exits are no worse than Leopold, if not better. And if you didn't notice, our second pairing went to crap once Leopold got here. And he was a black hole on the power play. J-Bo had a far bigger impact on this team than Leopold did.
