Streit could still improve.. the age is a big factor, but he has just got better and better each season.
This sounds like a fan's endorsement of Streit. Streit was about 27 when he was drafted. He had lots of international experience. I failed to see any further improvement in Streit as a Dman in Montréal. Otherwise, he wouldn't have been used mainly as a forward and Brisebois wouldn't have been signed. Komisarek had 2 years of college and 2 years of AHL when he came up. He will never be used as a forward or offensive Dman but what he does bring to the game is something Streit is physically incapable of contributing.
Weber isn't ready for the NHL but I wonder if Streit was at Weber's age.
