Fcat, a little more information would be helpful. Your experience level, how much are you squatting, deadlifting currently and why are you wanting to superset?

I like the Olympic style the best, but if your wrists don't have good flexibility the crossed grip works pretty well.

However, you might get the best results of all by fixing your squat. Do you have any videos of you squatting to check if you are getting deep enough?

Yeah, I think that would provide the most effective way to get larger and stronger overall. 300 isn't a massive amount of weight, and if it's high then it really won't be doing much for you at all. It's simple really, 400 down to parallel will build big legs.
Some video's of your squat form would be helpful in giving further advice.

You'd be better off by fixing your squat depth and drive than replacing one of the best full body movements and hormonally beneficial exercises. Look up Rippetoe's demonstration of squats on youtube; he will help you learn the form better and get your depth right.

Leg presses are about as useful as naked women at an Adam Lambert concert........just kidding! :P

I'd focus on front squats over leg presses 10-1 though.
