Leetch is a first ballot hall of famer. He is effective paired with a solid stay at home D man and jumps into the play as well as anyone ever has. My concern from a Leaf point of view is do they need what he brings ? Would these resources have been better spent on Witt ? I think a lot of Leaf fans are wondering the same thing. Kovalev and Gonchar both bring an element to their new teams that was lacking, while Leetch joins a defense corps that gets offensive contribution from McCabe,Kaberle and Klee. Of course, Leetch is a great player and if the idea is that you can't lose by adding a great player, you have to roll the dice. We'll see, that's why they play the games.
