Leetch to the Flyers?


Speculation is growing that Brian Leetch might take a 2 year deal from the Flyers instead of a 1 year 6 million dollar deal from the Rangers. Apparantly, several high priced veterans on the Flyers have been asked to defer some salary so that the Flyers can sign Leetch.

This in my opinion would be a real coup. Not that the Rangers are very good, but losing Leetch would create a tremendous hole on the team. And the division rival Flyers would get much stronger. If the Flyers can get solid goaltending, they would be a serious threat to the Devils Senators and whomever comes out of the West. It will be interesting to see if Leetch takes less to stay in NY or sticks his finger up at the Ranger organization and says “see ya.” Remember, the man negotiating for the Rangers organization is the coach as well. If he pisses off his best player, that player probably won’t return.
