Farewell Leetchie

Another of Coach Mom's favorite players hangs up his skates. We knew this was coming, but it's still sad. Brian Leetch is the only American to ever have won the Conn Smythe trophy as the NHL playoff MVP. Good luck Brian and thanks for the memories. Lots of fans can say "Now I Can Die In Peace" because of you. (click on this link to see the famous sign held up by Rangers fans after their 1994 Championship win; it's the first picture, but the website appears to have been taken down.)
