'Ville' good guy ?

Thank you Ville Leino.  I appreciated your brief stay here in Philadelphia as a Flyer.  The 2010 playoff run you had was great!  You had a pretty good 2010-2011 season and really fit in well on a line with Briere and Hartnell.

A few months ago, I thought that you were really being a good team player when you did not sign an extention, which allowed the Flyers to trade to get Kris Versteeg in an attempt to solidify the lineup for another run at the cup.  However, in retrospect, it kinda seems that you were instead making a schrewd business decision.  One that worked out exceptionally for you when you were rewarded with what appears now to be a more than generous contract.

I hope all works out well for you in Buffalo, but not too well in the playoffs and obviously not well anytime you play the Flyers.


Does anyone else get the impression that Ville was not totally being a 'team-player' when he did not sign an extention? (he must have a really good agent!!)
