Greatest Rangers defenseman HAS to be Leetch. Not even a debate in my mind. I'll give you that Park had to compete against Orr for the Norris during his tenure as a Ranger. Look at who Leetch was competing with for over a decade: Chelios, Niedermayer, Pronger, Stevens, MacInnis, Coffey, Borque. Anyone there not a hall of famer?

Tenure: Leetch
Norris Trophies: Leetch
Conn Smythe: Leetch
Stanley Cup: Leetch
Calder: Leetch
Goals/Assists/Points: Leetch
NYR defensemen records: Leetch

If you want to draw CAREER comparisons between Park and Leetch, then you can make a better argument for Park and his (and Orr's) influence on the game, 2nd place Norris finishes, etc...

But, the title of this thread is about NYR Top Defenseman of all time and that, my friends, is not even close.

Brad played here 7+ seasons. Brian played here 16+. Both at a very high level.
