If we're planning on a full long-term rebuild, we may need high cap hit players like Leino just to hit the floor.

I honestly don't have a problem with him being on the team as long as he's not taking a spot from a younger player. Which at this point isn't a concern for reasons you stated.

Keep him on through 2015 at least if the tank's going to take at least that long. Then at that point it's only two more years left on the deal and a smaller buy out cost. Or maybe he'll actually have trade value at that point.

To me, getting something, ANYTHING out of the sunk cost of Leino is worth trying right now.
