Streit wasn't a top four dman last year. The fact that he was even considered a dman last year is a JOKE. He played forward!!! Is Tanguay a dman cause he plays the point on the PP. Sergei Kostitsyn a dman cause he plays point on the PP. What was it that made Streit a dman last year?????
The Islanders can have Streit. For the money and term they gave him, it didn't make sense for the habs to even come close to that offer. We would of had close to, or around $20M of cap space used up on 4 dman (if you want to call Streit a dman) next year after Komisarek signed.
Just because players like Streit and Grabovski are putting up numbers so far this season, doesn't mean they would be doing it in Montreal. They wouldn't be receiving anywhere near the same amount of ice time.
Yes Streit is a good PP player. Is it worth $4M a year for a good PP player that isn't particularly great at any other facet of the game??? No.

While I don't disagree, I think we could and should have signed Streit...plus he said he never got an offer from Gainey, that he would of signed for a lot less than what the Isles offered him, seeing as he was kind of shocked that the Isles made him such an offer....he wasn't even thinking he could of gotten that much on the market. So in my books,
I think Gainey could of signed him for probably between 1.5$ and 2.5$ million, and at that price, I sign Streit any day
Um....no. If you recall Gainey had negotiations with Streit's agent. You honestly think Gainey didn't offer him something. I'm sure Gainey went way higher than the numbers you suggest.
Hey look, it's Duffman; the guy in a costume that creates awareness of Duff!
