What’s Up With Leetch

from the New York Times,

“It’s been great,” Leetch said in a recent telephone interview from his home in Boston. “I used to always be thinking about the game. It’s a big weight off my shoulders. I get to enjoy being a dad.”
This is semi-retirement for Leetch, a defenseman who spent the first 16-plus seasons of his career with the Rangers. He has decided not to play this season, so far, although at 38 he has not yet called it a career. He and his wife, Mary Beth, have stayed in Boston, where Leetch played last season.
He said he still received calls from teams with offers to play, but none had felt quite right, including a possible return to the Rangers.
