I think the Habs had a much bigger need for a Lang than they did a Streit. No Lang means Chipchura and Lapierre on the 3rd line, which brings down the offence this team focuses on. Streit had no room on this team, he's a 4th line, borderline 3rd liner. Gorges, Bouillon and O'Byrne are all better defensively. I just don't see the fit.
