Leino for the most part looks very good ever since he left the wings. dont exactly know why but he does. Maybe east is smaller, slower, and weaker lol
Still sucks defensively and is slow but hes doing great offensively very smart plays. Maybe he only looks good cause briere got hot.
He could get 3 mil for sure.

Wings are pretty specific about what they expect out of their younger players... it's two-way or the highway. Ville found a perfect fit.

The funny thing is, Flyers fan's exclaim about how great he is at Defense.

The line he plays on helps him succeed and the chemistry of that line clicked right away which is why he is being so productive. He had pressure here to succeed and at the Flyers there was no pressure, which is why he flourished, which says somehting about his ability to handle pressure...

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.


You mean the guy who refused to play a defensive game and constantly quit on plays? He's not hardworking. Even with the Flyers, he lets Briere and Hartnell do most of the work when he's on the ice.

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.

Agreed, he's found his niche in Philly, he'd be absolutely mad to walk away just to get a few extra $'s.

Is Ville really that good or is it the players around him who make him that good?

All I know is that he was almost non-existent in the game against Montreal last night (of course no Flyers play scored in that game, but others played showed up last night).

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.


For guy of his skill level and age 1 season in the AHL is a lot of time. Remember Babcock's statement that Leino was the best player he'd ever sent to the minors.

He also said the same thing about Helm...
