Leino: Season Was A Battle

From the Buffalo News,

Ville Leino was nearly invisible with a hockey stick in his hand. Off the ice, however, he was the Sabres’ straightest shooter.

Leino candidly and honestly delivered opinions on any subject that came up this season. The switch from left wing to center? Hated it. The crowd in Buffalo? Too quiet. The atmosphere in the dressing room? Not fun enough. Games early in the season? Sometimes it’s tough to get excited for them.

So, as he said farewell to a forgettable season, it was no surprise Leino came clean about his first year in Buffalo.

He sounds like he did when he played for Detroit. Complaining of ice time and blaming others. This guy just doesn’t get it. NOTHING IS GUARANTEED IN THE NHL. Well besides his paycheck bahahahahaha. Bury this prick in the minors.

I’d really like to see him play the entire year without injury. I think he could be a leader on the the ice. We’ll see next year.
