The curse of Ville Leino

Recommended Posts

On July 1, 2011 the Sabres signed Ville Leino to a dumb contract they would later use a compliance buyout on. Since that contract was signed the Sabres have not made the playoffs once (9 years). The contract is still technically on the books until July 1 of 2020. At that point he will officially be gone from this team. Will we make the playoffs this year? Or will the curse survive in its entirety for all 9 seasons he was technically part of this team?

Someone needs to make a “Are the Sabres Still Paying Ehrhoff” site. Probably get a lot of clicks in the next decade.

Ehrhoff was a solid top-4 PMD. He'd be a great player (in his prime) for JBot's roster. His contract wassa bomba bad! (not the 4M/year hit, but the structure.) We were rightfully punished for it.

But this reminds me... The Moulson won't be with us, always. Nor the Skinner. Truly, the Ehrhoff is strong in this one.

The Sabres have to pay Ehrhoff $857k every year until 2027-28... that’s ridiculous!! Good job on that contract Darcy!

Oh my God, I just thought about what it would be like to make $857K per year for the next 8 years, and not even have to go to work.

You and me both! Too bad we didn't play sports on a professional level. 

I think Ehrhoff has been getting this settlement payment every year since 2014?
