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.
