Streit isn't a great defencemen.....thats the bottom line. If he was, Gainey would have signed him in the off-season and he'd still be playing defence for us on the powerplay and trying to play forward the rest of the time.
If he was a good defencemen like Hamrlik is, then Streit would have been signed, but he isn't that good of a defencemen so we let him walk to make cap room and to give O'Byrne a chance to play more.
This has been nothing but a very smart move by Bob Gainey!!!!!
We don't want to be like the Leafs and have $15 million of our salary cap used up by 3 defencemen....one of them being Streit, who can't even provide good solid defence.
