Leino: Season Was A Battle

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.
