Tortorella should let Leetch give Rangers Brian power

Larry Brooks wants Torts to hire Brian Leetch as an assistant coach

This is where Tortorella must have the most open mind of all, because if the head coach wonít acknowledge the need or isnít receptive to the idea of adding such a specialist to his coaching staff, the move would be counter-productive.

Better to do nothing, better to leave the power play in the hands of assistant Mike Sullivan (if he does not leave the organization for a head-coaching job in Calgary), than force someone on Tortorella.

The perfect guy is standing right here, of course. Thatís Brian Leetch, who has eased back into the fold doing some television work with MSG.

It is impossible to think of anyone who would be better in teaching gifted, young defensemen Ryan McDonagh and Michael Del Zotto the art of playing the point than Leetch, truly one of the most accomplished power-play quarterbacks of his time.

Leetch did indicate an interest in getting into coaching when his playing career was over. Is he ready to make that move?
