The thing in these playoffs that surprised me more than just about anything, was how ineffective Leetch was against the Flyers.

Even playing on bad Rangers teams Leetch often took over games against the Flyers. He always seemed to play better against the Flyers than anyone else.

The the one time Leetch played with the Leafs against the Flyers in the regular season he was their best player and had 3 points in a 3-2 Leafs win.

In the Leafs/Flyers series the he did absolutely nothing offensively at even strength, and their PP was terrible.

He was also victimized a number of times on Flyers goals, he was particularly bad in games 5 and 6.
