Offensively and defensively. He makes more than enough plays defensively. On the other hand, it can be said that Poti is the worst player on the ice when it comes to defensive responsibilities.
Leetch is also smart enough to block passing lanes. Lets also not over look the fact that Leetch is not 6'3, 215.
