To be fair, Markov and Streit were both far worse than brisebois was in this repsect. Markov mishandled the puck many a time (I think he was injured) and Streit basically kept shooting the puck into the other teams skates causing a turnover/oddman rush/breakaway.

I'm actually really happy streit is gone. He's great but he's a big minus player, same goes for ryder, neither were great defensively.

As people, I like Ryder and Streit, they seem like really nice guys, but I just don't want them on my team.

When I think about it, I can agree with what you are saying but I still don't see him as our best pker, one of though.

Sure i liked Streit's offence but the rest of his game was below average. High quality Defenceman he is not..
Yeah but I've never seen a player get beaten in one on one battles as much as Souray though. If he was the last d-man back on a one on one you just knew the opposition was scoring.....

I can't wait to see how Souray does this season.
