Haha. You're so wrong.
I keep seeing multiple posts on this forum and other forums about how we made a bad move giving up Ville Leino.
The reality is, he is one of the highest scoring players on Philadelphia at this moment in the playoffs.
I don't think Ville Leino is a great player, and at best he is a secondary scorer.
He Didn't fit in with the wings because of the depth chart we have.
At this point and time, I believe this is an attempt to get a raise by him. (His contract expires after the season)
But really, who would sit in the lineup for this guy to get goals? We aren't sitting bertuzzi, homer, datsyuk, zetterberg, franzen, filpulla?
None of these players are going to play on the third line, it just doens't happen.
It's a great fit for a low scoring defensive style of game for Philly, but not for Detroit.
Great or Bust?
I'm gonna say bust, he is lousy with the puck on his stick and is bad defensively(watch the last game even tho they won)
And he is not a regular season scorer. Most of his goals are just to an open net so I'm not impressed with his playoffs.
It's not a contract year for him. That would make it all the difference, but it isn't like that. He still has that 800k year for next year as well. So he's not "playing for a rase".
Also, that other comment either shows that you've not watched a single Flyers game this post-season OR that you wan't to make him look MUCH worse by trying to make some bulls*** excuses for him playing well. He's been absolutely dominant at times and has been a top forward for them, especially in the Finals.
Your argument is so ridicolous man. "Lousy with the puck"? LOL. So you know better than Laviolette, Briere, Pronger or Burish, right?
He's not a regular season scorer because "most of his goals are on open net"? WTF. So you're not impressed with his playoffs. Yeah. Obviously you aren't. And there's only one reason for that. YOU DON'T WANNA BE.
But go ahead, keep making these funny excuses for yourself. As I said, maybe if you try hard enough they'll actually become true. Try this: say repeatedly "Leino sucks! Leino sucks!" and it might just happen.
Or not. Well anyway, watch for him to lift that Cup after few days.
