Nice deal for Philly. I still think Leino can be a solid point producer, he really has struggled this season, but people have had offseasons before.....
hes not having an off season... He just isnt having a season, period.
He looks and plays disinterested.
Todd Bertuzzi was having an off season. He was hitting posts or shooting wide. But he was hustling, forechecking, backchecking. But he was playing. Lieno was given PP time, He was out on the top line with Datsyuk and Bertuzzi at times. He had ample opportunity to show something, anything.
All he showed was AHL capability. And even sometimes i question that.
Lieno was..... Out there in a wings jersey. Thats about the extent of him.
I don't care how bad Wings fans are saying Leino is. Today is a happy day, espeically waking up to this. So long OKT and Wolfy!!!!
And yes to the comment about "Leino ahead of JVR." As GKJ said, Powe isn't top 6 material, but I also don't see him being scratched in favor of Leino. Giroux/Asham/JVR have chemistry together. Tough to break them up. So I'm not really sure what the play with Leino is..
