KK: Ville Leino Leads NHL Forwards in +/-

What a steal Ville Leino was by General Manager Paul Homgren last season, when Homer snatched him from the grasp of the Detroit Red Wings for a below-average defenseman in Ole-Kristian Tollefsen, and a late draft pick.

Leino set Flyers playoff records during last Spring’s incredible run, and this year he’s picked up where he left off last season. Leino has become even more of a threat, serving as a third of one of the more dangerous lines in the league, as he and Scott Hartnell flank center Danny Briere. Hartnell’s crash-the-net mentality, coupled with Briere’s speed and scoring ability, have complemented the Finn very well, allowing him the ability to serve as the unit’s top playmaker. It is my hope, just like anyone else who has a rooting interest in the Flyers, that Leino is locked up for the near future as soon as possible by Homer.
