Does Holland keep useless players on the team for five years?
Actually it was 4 and a half seasons.
Lebda isn't completely useless, but he doesn't have a lot of upside. He worked pretty well with the Wings because of his speed, but his typical move was to make a rush up ice, not know what to do with the puck, then turn it over or handcuff a teammate with a panicked pass.
I still just don't get what the hell the Leafs were thinking when they signed him for that much. He isn't exactly an unknown quantity or a young player.
Sounds like he has a nice seat in the press box though.
