This discussion has gone on too long. No one should want Leino back.


We caught lightning in a bottle with him. He was a fresh skater with something to prove and enjoyed excellent chemistry with two very effective offensive players. Holmgren smartly let him go before his value dropped.


I liked Leino, but I always saw him as a bit of an aberration. He wasn't particularly talented himself, had an atrocious shot, was pretty slow. All he really had were decent puck protection skills and a talent for putting pucks to areas where Hartnell or Briere could finish. Nothing too special.
