That's because they aren't that good.
Stevens would MAYBE fit in in the old days, because of his cheapshotting. NOT because of any skill.
Leetch is OVER-RATED offensively, and adequate defensively. He is one of the top 20 skating defensemen of all-time, perhaps, after Orr, Coffey, Robinson, Lidstrom, Salming, Housley, etc. He is a pretty decent passer, and an average shooter. He has good moves for a defenseman at times, but won't make people forget Coffey or Housley or Orr. He is simply a very good defenseman in an era of great defensmen.
