Even though Ritola didn't score on that giveaway by Columbus in the 3rd, that's more offense than what Leino has provided in over a month. I'd keep Ritola up for sometime it's obvious he wants to play. Leino is just one big disappointment right now.

LOL..... I was right....

Good riddance Leino..... if you don't want to bust your @ss wearing that Winged Wheel, then you don't deserve to wear it. That's why players like Draper and Maltby have lasted so long..... they may not score a ton of goals but they give 125% effort. That kind of effort leads to opportunities.... if not goal scoring then at least drawing penalties and preventing goals against. I doubt if Leino drew even one penalty all year AND he was a team leading MINUS 9. Go back to Finland.

I doubt him getting a job in Finland with his current work ethic.

Ritola was VERY impressive last night, played a very solid game. Stole a few pucks, took a few quality shots, drew a penalty and showed some tremendous puck handling skills. The skill is clearly there.

Ken Holland: Hes (Mursak) a young guy, provides energy, can skate, hes a puck hound.

If only that one shot had gone in... He should be paired with Flip for the time being and maybe insert Eaves as the other winger, I think that could be a decent 2nd line (all things considered).

Agreed x2. Ritola-Flip-Eaves is far, far better than Maltby-Flip-Miller which was the 2nd line for most of last night.

Although in saying that, I do like Eaves with Helm. So much speed and energy. Eaves has such a hard shot.

That's exactly why I think it would be great for him to have a pass-first setup man like Flip next to him and Ritola can play with the puck too. Maltby has no business being on a scoring line.
