Ville Leino has firmly entrenched himself in interim coach Ted Nolan's doghouse.

He centered the fourth line between John Scott and Matt Ellis at Monday's practice and he's likely to start Tuesday's game against Florida there as well. "We're looking for people that want to compete and want to work," Nolan said. "It doesn't matter what your skill level is. It's nothing with no will. We have to get him competing at a certain level. Some days he shows it. Some days he doesn't. You're frustrated with most people that don't do it on a consistent basis. He's showed some signs lately." Leino has no goals and just 22 shots in 30 games with the Sabres this season. He has collected just six assists and has no fantasy value right now.
