Sabres sign Ville Leino to 6 year Deal

The Buffalo Sabres have signed Ville Leino.  According to TSN’s Bob McKenzie it’s a 6 year contract for $27 million.  The right winger scored 19 goals, 34 assits and was a +14 last year with the Flyers.  From the Hockey Forecaster:


ASSETS: An unselfish and gifted playmaker, he’s a strong puckhandler with good vision and supreme passing skills. He’s also a pretty versatile forward.

FLAWS: Doesn’t shoot the puck nearly enough. Not very big or fast, he can also be a liability at times because of his lack of physicality.

CAREER POTENTIAL: Creative playmaking winger.
