It's not nearly as important as actually winning the thing and it's not like Leetch was going up against a bunch of slouches when he won the thing.
I would agree with you if Park wasn't finishing 2nd to probably one of the Top 3 players to ever play.

Park had a better all around game than Leetch...Leetch has the edge offensively but Park was no slouch offensively, he played better D, was more physical and fought.
