The Not So Good UFAs

from Adam Proteau of The Hockey News,

The biggest busts – so far – of the 2011 unrestricted free agent market:

10. Marty Reasoner, C, NY Islanders- The Isles jumped on the first day of free agency to sign Reasoner to a two-year, $2.7 million contract. Unfortunately, the 34-year-old – who tied a career-high with 14 goals for Florida in 2010-11 – has amassed only a single assist and a minus-7 rating.

1. Ville Leino, C/LW, Buffal
o- Sabres owner Terry Pegula was one of the most aggressive players in unrestricted free agency, but it appears he and GM Darcy Regier were overly aggressive in signing the 28-year-old Leino to a six-year, $27-million deal. In return, Leino has flopped badly to begin his Buffalo career, with just two goals and four points in 17 games. That’s a nine-goal, 18-point pace – and at $4.5 million this season, that’s also incredibly awful.
