    Seems like Leetch must own every rangers defenseman record.

    Was Leetch that good or was every rangers defenseman just so bad? Iím inclined to believe the latter.

    Leetch is 8th all time for points by a defenseman. Only reason he didn't win a bunch more Norris trophies is he played at the same time a Lidstrom.

    I would take Leetch over Lidstrom any day.

    Only reason he did not win more Norris Trophies is that his play declined to some degree after 1997. I don't know if I want Fox to get the Norris. It will cost us about $2m in cap space and focus a lot of attention on him.

    The maximum bonus for winning an award is $250k. Fox's maximum bonuses are $850k which probably just reflects the maximum class A and not class B bonuses which awards fall into. He'll probably max out his bonuses this season, but in no world will they cost $2M.

    I think he meant on his next contract.

    Probably won't be 2 mill extra, but the "he's the best defender in the league" card his agent will play is gonna up the cost.

    We have no idea what his next deal will be worth and won't have a real indication until the Avs extend Makar this off-season.

    I think winning the Norris could be the difference between 9 and 11 on the next contract. If he is on the 1st All Star team I guess it might be close to 11 anyway. At this point, I think he's close to an assured spot on the 2d team at least.

    It's too bad he "only" got one point last night. He was everywhere that game.

    He was THAT good, Nashty! Back when Leetch was a rookie, the only guys they were able to compare him to were Park, Greschner...and maybe Dave Maloney. Leetch was what I call, an "All timer". The guy was magic....plain and simple.

    The cool thing about Leetch's tenure is that during that time we were able to bring in this Zubov fella ....Holy shit!!....you wanna see a power play with Leetch and Zubov at the points, and then Graves, Messier, and Kovalev up front?? It was like a dream team!

    He was awesome the best Ranger player ever in my opinion with Hank a close second. FUCK Zubov was so slick what a mess getting rid of him Ozzy.

    I only started watching in roughly 96/97 so I never got to see him dominate. He was good when I watched him but its crazy to me that he seems to have every record and most by a mile too.

    Time for some of them to be broken.

    The Zubov trade was the turning point to the downward spiral of the team until the Rangers got Jagr.

    Fox definitely makes me think of Leetch. Fox is a little awkward when you compare the two's skating ability. They couldn't catch Leetch...he was that fast, and REALLY slick. I remember the year he broke his ankle when the Rangers had their first legit shot at the cup back in March of '93. I was sick to my stomach for a week!

    I guess the best way I could sum up Leetch, Nashty is....Think Fox times 2...with a really decent shot.

    Worst trade we made in my lifetime. Point per game 24 year old defender and a point per game 23 year old center who had a rough lockout season dealt in the same deal. Shameful.
