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.
