I'm not saying the guy was a fairy, far from it. But it certainly aint the first thing that makes me appreciate him, Pronger on the other hand... the guy DIED on the ice and came back... Whatever, I was misunderstood or didn't explain myself properly, sorry.
I don't really think of guys that play with shovels for sticks as being "pure goal scorer[s]". LeClair ground out his goals, and got the majority of his goals in the dirty areas of the ice. That's the definition of being a "tough" hockey player. He certainly had a powerful slapper, but that wasn't where he made his living in the NHL... he made it in a 15 ft radius around the crease.
