Yeah, let's appreciate a guy who felt like he was too good to play in the AHL.

Lazy bum needed an ass kicking and that's what Holland gave him.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

In Finland we have this saying: "Koirat haukkuu ja karavaani kulkee."

In English word to word: "Dogs keeping barking but the caravan goes on."

Basically: "HATERZ GONNA HATE!"

But why do they keep hating? Is it because he had an assist to the GWG on Sunday? I dunno.

Read the post above yours. He could still be here if he didn't think that he was a superstar.

I think "haters gonna hate" is generally used when someone/something is actually good.

I'm just wondering why people still keep talking about this if they think we got the better end of that deal and everything went well. Everything's great so let's move on right?

Or is there some bitterness in the air?

Because it's fun. I'm sure all the Uwe Krupp jokes here are because people are so bitter.

What happened in that case btw? Did Detroit pay him?

I tried to google, but didn't find anything. I wasn't around here back then. Reading through some stories saying that Red Wings hired private investigators etc. Kinda evil...

Agreed, he would just poison everyone down there and set a horrible role model for Ritola/Tatar etc.

Leino doesn't even deserve to be in this great country, he should go back to being a s***ty player for a s***ty Finland league.

Not in the slightest.

Because he barely did anything here and people have their whipping boys.

I don't play that game and wish him nothing but the best, but Leino did very little/nothing to help his cause, so the whipping boy status is more than justified.

Just because it is one of your favorite players doesn't make it any more wrong than other players who might fall victim to this.

Yeah, but I generally don't hate any player. It just seems kinda sick when people would want player X to get hit by a bus or something like that. I'm no hippie or anything like that, but why do people even need to bash players? I understand when you say that "player X is overpaid" or "didn't play well tonight" etc. I have my favourite players, whom I wish to do well. I support them. But there aren't a player whom I wished bad things to happen.

No doubt about it, I'm with you.

I rarely like it either, but it's part of the forums for better/worse so just gotta deal with it.

Hmm....

I could be evil and pull up all the quotes from all of you guys saying how Leino would make up for (and then some) the scoring we lost with Hudler leaving. That worked out well, huh?

"I've never seen a warlock do that without his magic."
"I once devoured a monk's soul. It tasted like chocolate."

I appreciate that Ville finally left so we could get to the business of actually having a win streak this season. Thanks Ville.

I don't know why all Leino fans keep bringing up that he gets an assist once in a while as a testament to his quality. I'm sure the Wings and Flyers really wanted him just for the occasional assist and not even reliable for that.

I just wanted to point that out because it seems that people aren't satisfied with him getting traded and they still need to bash him. Now I ask, why? People want him to do badly, so that the trade would look better, which I think is stupid. If people really were satisfied with the trade then obviously they wouldn't have bitterness or something like that to cause them to post comments like above here.

I wish well for every former Red Wings player if he isn't a child abuser or a murderer etc. This is only a sport, so I really don't know why people HATE some players like they do.

I also was definitely support keeping Hudler, but you aren't so stupid that you'd think it was a choice between him and Leino.

I myself never ever said he would do something like top 40 points this season. That was just another example of the wrong kind of optimism by the Wings fan, just like this Leino hating now.

After Hudler was gone and Leino was here, everyone said Hudler sucks etc. and said that Leino will win the Calder. Now that Leino is gone and OKT is here, everyone says that Leino sucks. Just to make the things look better for us.

Leino isn't half the player Hudler is, but to say something like he won't have a chance to be a NHL-level player in the future is just stupid. The guy's cap hit was 800k for god's sake.
