Leetch has 10 less points and is still a minus player at 5 If you are going to use these stats, ok Leetch has 6 more goals Leetc
Gonchar makes 3.65 right now and will be eligable for arbitration.True
Leetch makes 6.6 right now and has one more year on his contract.True
Gonchar is bigger, as talented, younger, probably healthier, currently cheaper, and won't be awarded any more than Brian Leetch in arbitration. If you are going to pay Leetch 6.6 now and (not sure what next year) you should be just as likely and willing to pay what Gonchar gets in arbitration. Thus, they are not equal, and Boston gave up the same amount to get a better, younger, cheaper player. Nope, hes no better,but is younger
