As someone who watched his entire career closely that is 100% false. Infact the opposite is true, during his career his tremendous offensive abilites overshadowed his defensive abilities. As a Ranger, Leetch always was on the the first pk unit and always on the ice in the last minute defending a one goal lead. While not a huge hitter he was strong positionally and was awesome at intercepting passes and breaking up plays. Obviously he's not as good as he once was but he isn't a defensive liabilty like a Sandis Ozolinsh or Tom Poti.
