And Leech was not a #1 dman when he came here, not even close.
The Problem is we in Toronto have a massive "The Grass is always greener" complex. Everyone is a superstar until they play for the leafs. In reality you never really know how good a player is until he player for your favorite team. Where you get to watch them day in and day out. I guarantee if one of the few defencemen in the NHL who you think are top liners (i.e Weber, Chara, Suter, Keith, Pronger ect) played for the leafs their shine would rub off real quick, especially if they didn't have adequate support. Weber has 0 points this year in 7 games. If he played in Toronto the media and fans would be all over him for not producing on the PP.
