Of course, it coul be argued that you do not want him on the PK to save him for the 5 on 5 and PP, but I'm always of the opinion that you put your best guys out there in all opportunities come playoff time..
Agreed. Leetch is an outstanding PK man, and his aerobic recovery time is so astonishingly high that a coach should never fear giving him all the ice time he wants.

On a side note, as a huuuuuge Leetch fan I'm pleased he's got the chance to win another Cup. I also think a full season next year with the Leafs and McCabe give him an excellent shot at another Norris trophy.
