Can't wait to see the reaction to these types of deals.

Leino's contract is necessary to get to the floor for the next two years (ie THROUGH the 15/16 season...coincidentally, when Grigorenko, Pysyk and Larsson will need new deals). Then he'll have one year to go on his contract when a whole slew of people will need new deals (Risto, Zads, Armia, Cat, Girgs).

For that one year where we might be competing for a possible playoff spot.....that $4.5 mil deal won't be hurting us against the cap.

I think Leino's a Sabre for his contract, unless his play slides to completely unacceptable levels.
