Its a wash because gretzky helped keep us respectable, and jagr brought us back, the years between were just garbage and I hate that leetch had to play them...
I have to take exception to this statement. Gretzky's final 2 years with the Rangers/as a player were the flush that took this franchise down the toilet.

Not saying it was his fault...I feel terrible that two all-timers like Gretzky and Leetch had to play with such a garbage filled roster, but those final 2 years were far from respectable for the franchise.
