The great hockey blog Hockey Hermit recently posted a “Best 10 Defenseman of All Time” list, and had former Islander team captain Denis Potvin at No. 7, and ex-Ranger legend Bryan Leetch at No. 8.
Now I am a huge fan of both, but when I asked some hockey fans of late who they thought had a better career; predictably the Rangers fans said Leetch and Isles fans said Potvin.
Now I expected this response, but now thought I have the proper forum, I can ask a bigger audience.
So? Who had the better career, Potvin or Leetch?
