But lets also remember how he was ***** over and over by the flyers and how he rarely got a shot on net, practically everyone was at least 5 feet wide. He was caught up ice several times and had a tough time stopping anyone in his own zone.
Maybe Leetch is your favorite player, i dunno, but the fact is, his age is VERY evident
1st of all he elevated McCabe's play big guy, not the other way around as you are trying to say with utter nonsense about Purinton being able to do what he did which shows that if you did watch the games you didn't know what you were talking about.

As for Philly, yes Leetch did have trouble with the big bodies but if people watched you saw that eliminating Leetch's space and keying on him was one of Philly's top priorities and McCabe's game went in the crapper when this happened.

The Leafs D was too thin and nobody(Kabarle) didn't step up and the injuries forced Quinn to overplay both Leetch and McCabe who were both playing half the game.

You think that might wear a guy down playing all those minutes and every key situation against a huge Flyer team that is keying one you 1st and foremost???
