Don't count out Leetch-Ranger redux

Don't count out Leetch-Ranger redux

http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/hockey/s...1p-377096c.html

The door that appeared closed weeks ago is ajar again. Brian Leetch and agent Jay Grossman have spoken several times in recent weeks with the Rangers hierarchy - from Glen Sather to assistant GM Don Maloney and head coach Tom Renney. The sides have expressed mutual interest in exploring a way to get Leetch back on Broadway, but contract terms have yet to be discussed.

"Yes, we've spoken with the Rangers," Grossman said yesterday. "But Brian hasn't arrived at the point yet where he's told me to go ahead and engage in what I would deem to be serious discussions with anybody."

Leetch, a 38-year-old unrestricted free agent, apparently has made up his mind to play another season. The Rangers' payroll is at $40.6 million, giving them wiggle room under a $44 million salary cap. However, the Rangers might decide to spend some of that cap room - making a Leetch return more difficult - by signing another forward to replace Jed Ortmeyer, who was diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism.

I think Dellapina has a Brian Leetch doll in his bed. I have never scene a writer canvass so much for his favorite player to be re-signed. He has been reporting his fantasy wishes since Leetch left several years ago, yet he is still making his pitch to Sather.

As much as i love leetch, unless there is a trade in the works, the rangers just dont have room for him at this point. Malik, Rozsival, Rachunek, Ward, Tyutin, Kasparaitis, and Pock are already 7. If they wanted to trade Rozsival and sign leetch fro a year until staal is completely ready, i could maybe see this, as much as id like it, i doubt it happens.

No thanks. Two words: Please retire.

It's time to move on. I can't take this stuff anymore. Brooks and Dellapina can both go to Hell.

ONE WORD: Wow.

One word. Enough! Everytime I make a post about it, you have the same response. Why? I have stated repeatedly how I feel. Why is it so hard to believe? It's not worth making a big deal over.

SILENCE! I found it remarkable that you were so frank, get over it.
