    Good for Leetch, he was great while he was here.

    It was hard for him lately, he was traded and left NY for the first time, then the Leafs didn’t want him anymore, and now the Rags don’t want him again. And then the idiots with USA hockey didn’t take him (Along with Roenick, Chelios, and Hull) on the Olympic training camp roster. I wonder if for Leetch and Roenick it’s cuz they are locks but still… Where’s Klee too? He didn’t make the camp, yet he made the World Cup team.

    Why doesn’t JFJ go after him, they need a scorer on D in the new faster NHL

    its not right….he belongs in a rangers jersey. sather is making a mistake by not taking him back but what can we do?? boston is getting a good defenseman if they sign him

    Leafs are losing out again, they better pick it up or they’ll end up having half of their farm team playing in the bigs.

    This would be awesome news for Boston!!! After losing out on Gonchar this morning getting Leetch would be a nice replacement. Both are very moblie and very gifted offenseively. I still hope we can get Satan or Modano though, but we’ll have to wait and see!!!

    The leafs better get him or else it was a total waste to give up a 1st and 2 young prospects for him to play 12 games.

  7. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    Dude, the Leafs are sitting back waiting to get the leftovers at bargain prices… When all the other teams are out of cap space, and have filled rosters, we’ll sign them.

    Let it go buddy. Leetch deserves to be on a Cup running team, at least… a playoff team.

    We’re rebuilding…. let it go. I’ll miss him like crazy, but we need to rebuild.

    If the Bruins do not end up with a team destined to win the cup for the next 5 years their GM Sucks! Is it me? Or does it seem almost every availible “American” free agent wants to sign with the Boston Bruins!

    Who’s going to be left? All the impact players will be gone. You’ll fill a few holes, but all you’ll really be getting are aging, injury-prone, former stars. Every hour that goes by, there’s another fairly big name player signing somewhere, that pace can’t keep going. Eventually there won’t be anyone left worth signing. They better make their move soon.

    Eklund’s saying Leetch is headed to Detroit.

  12. Resmo112 says:

    leetch is going everywhere i just read he was coming to detroit WON’T HAPPEN. everyone seems to be going to the bruins today as well, Satan, Modano. What’s really been upsetting me is the lack of signings by the wings and the leafs, seriously it could end up NHL Farm Team. Why not, leafs will have Aki berg and sundin and the wings will have shanny and yzerman.

  13. mikster says:

    Modano is already resigned by the Stars.

    You still want to get other free agents when your team has yet to resign its two key players in Samsonov and Thornton!? Crazy….

    I guess it’s buh bye Joe.

    Part of the new NHL look is going to be playing each of your division teams 8 times. Each team has to gear up for what they will have to face within their division. If my team was in Bostons Division I would be hope to see them tinkering accordingly. The things about doing so is that boston is starting from scratch so its hard to evaluate what you will be up against. Knowing the B’s. They will construct a team of guys who can perform at a high level and once those guys perform well enough they will end up else where for more money despite a long lockout intended to stop this practice. Its Bostons way to discount a player price before it goes up.

    Like I said yesterday. The fans with the least amount of reason to hope:



    Boston better sign Leetch, they need like half a roster and players are being picked up quick… the good ones anyway.

  16. BigTyler says:

    Bruins sign leetch to 1 year deal
