What a career! What a player! What a Ranger!

All the best to #2, it's a shame it had to end with a trade to Toronto and a forgettable year in Boston, but nobody will take Leetch for anything other than a New York Ranger. One of the finest ever at that.

I was able to be there for Richter Night, scrapping whatever I could, I hope I'll be able to do the same for Leetch Night.

Think that I was fortunate to see him night in/night out in his prime between 88/92.
He was simply awesome. The proof how good he was came not only in the Cup and the conn smythe accolades but also in the World Cup where he lead the team!

Well done Brian. you can play on my rec team anytime!

I loved this man to death while he was here in NY. It literally broke my little heart in pieces when he got that great birthday present in Toronto We all expected Brian to be a lifer and none of the rest of the story has ever made sense. It truly hurts me to know that he does have some bitter feelings about getting traded by Sather. Brian was always known to be soft spoken in public and was never one for controversy. It's something called CLASS and we don't see it often. I hold those days of hanging at the Garden to see Mess and Leetchie some of the best of my sports memories. My love for hockey has just plumetted with the loss of them. It's fitting that Brian and his family are settled in Boston as his family is from there and his history is there. He loved New York, but was always a Boston person at heart. I consider all of this a huge loss for New York.

If I can get a ticket to see the number get raised, I will be there. No matter where I watch, though, I know I'll be in tears. I didn't cry for Mess. I will for Leetch.

I'll always love you, Brian. From watching you on Team USA in 88 through the Cup to the final games, it was a joy to see your finesse. I wish you only the best, wherever life leads you.
