MacInnis for overall body of work but Leetch was the better player when they were both in the prime.

Since Mac's peak was longer, he gets the edge, but during Leetch's peak (1989-1997), Leetch has the advantage (2 x Norris, 5 x post season AS selections, a CS and a Calder) compared to Mac's 1 x CS and 4 x postseason AS selections.

Macinnis was outstanding and elite defensively where Leetch was average to above average. But let's be honest -- the bulk of his points were because of his bomb. Leetch had an average shot but was far more creative with the puck.
