Leino's Worth prompted by Michael Grabner


I see today that Michael Grabner signed a 5 yr deal worth 15 milion or 3mil/year.

Does anyone see this as a benchmark for Big Ville Style?  Here are last year's lines, at least in so much as basic stats. 

Grabner - 76 GP  34 G  18 A  52 PTS (23 years old)

Leino - 81 GP  19 G  34 A  53 PTS  (28 years old)

I didn't include +/- as I'm not sure it is a great indicator of anything since it is very dependent on team ability.  I'd show CORSI because I think it is a valuable stat, but honestly I don't know where to find that info.

Regardless, we'd all agree thet neither of these guys are defensive stalwarts.  So as many of us here believe, this may be the true market contract for Leino, who is a similar type player.  Both have limited sample size, at least in the NHL, while Grabner is younger.  Usually, goal scorers do get valued higher as well, and I think we'd all agree that Grabner is the more "pure" goal scorer. 

Interested to hear your thoughts.
