That's the way I felt about Leetch being traded

What was wrong was that Slats would move Leetch "for the good of the organization" and then let Mess veto any possible deal. I won't forget what Mess did for us in 94, but Leetch never walked out on this team. He deserves more respect than Mess.
And, unfortunately, if Sather had just approached this the right way from the start, Leetch could have been part of the solution. But, what's done is done, and I hope Brian is successful in Toronto. truth be told, though, I am more concerned with the youth of this team developing and getting good players in the upcoming draft.
