You guys are probably getting sick of all the negative attention on Ville Leino right now, but to be honest he kind of deserves it and I really can’t help myself. If you guys want us to move on from the Ville Leino narrative or want Rich to take up the support thread again just let us know!
Leino could just score a goal to take some of the heat off and live up to his contract, or he could give the Buffalo Sabres back their money which he stole!
Anyways, back on topic. Just by taking a quick glance at the Buffalo Sabres stats this season one will quickly see that Phil
Varone already has more goals than Ville Leino in 31 fewer games and just while we’re keeping score, John Scott also has more goals than Leino. Varone has only played 4 games for the Buffalo Sabres this season, yet people are more excited about his future with the club than Leino’s.
This tweet is just further proof of the waste of money Ville Leino is in blue and gold…
Varone is currently paid $595,000(NHL) for 1 goal…Leino is being paid for $4mil for 0 goals.

Since everyone at NBC likes to remind fans about the horrible Leino contract, let’s continue to weep over the deal together in today’s poll. It’s a simple concept and you don’t have to think much, simply vote for the player you think will finish with the most goals this season. Will it be million dollar man Ville Leino or the rookie looking to prove he’s NHL worthy in Phil Varone?
