Leino could command 3 Million come next season. What an interesting development for the former whipping boy

My wish: A healthy roster

Should've posted this on his previous thread. But on topic, I honestly don't see him getting that much from anyone but philly.

and he will probably ask for four. This guy has the "sameulsson" over exaggerated idea of self worth written all over him.

If he keeps up what he's doing this season, he deserves $3mil a year. 15 points in 17 games after breaking a franchise rookie scoring record for the Flyers last season in the playoffs.

Why? He waswilling to spend a lot of time in Grand Rapids for us, which meant got less then he would have if he had gone to a different team that first year. Also, it must have been hard to take considering he was the second leading scorer in the Finish league the year previous. To me he has seemed nothing other than a humble, hard-working guy.

umm... He gave an ultimatum saying he didn't want to stay in the AHL after 1 season. That's not a lot of time.

Hopefully he signs with Philly. He's probably going to take whatever Philly offers him which will be AROUND 3 million. Can't really see him asking for more than that though. Actually thinking about it now, AROUND 3 million sounds outrageous for Leino. Philly might not be able to keep him after all, depends if GM Holmgren makes any moves or not. 1.8 million for cap space next season is not a lot.

They were talking about how Giroux and Carter's recent contracts and how Leino's definitely motivated to cash in.

I think $3 million is a bold prediction. He hasn't even played a full season with them yet. But I am glad Leino is doing well for them.

He is certainly putting up great numbers with them and fits nice on their team, i'm sure you won't be glad when they potentially meet the wings in the final and kill us...(yeah philly is the greatest team in the east by far)

Thank you. I'm thrilled Sammy walked, seriously. Thought he was way overvalued.

At his skill level and likely other options, he was most likely entitled to that statement.

*IF* they meet in the finals, Flyers aren't going to "kill us". No doubt Flyers are a good team, but so are the Red Wings. It'll be a battle.

Yeah for sure, i'm not throwing in the towel just saying you shouldn't be so glad for him doing good because there's a chance wings will meet flyers in the final :D


Maybe more like "glad he is doing good just not against the wings" :hehe: :thumbup:

If Leino is smart, he'll take what Philly offers. I'm sure they will make a decent offer. He's found utopia in Philly. He's be a fool to walk away over money. Unless the amount they offer is insultingly low.

Flyers fans absolutely love this guy,they've started to call him "Philly Leino." Anyone who thinks he's not worth $3 mil has not been watching Flyers games. Flyers look real good, they may have even found a goalie.

But but but we shouldn't have traded him when his trade value wasn't worth anything!!!! What the hell was management thinking?!?! :ph34r:

Just getting that out of the way, you know there's probably going to be one or two of those in a Ville Leino thread.
