As for Streit, he's -5. Gorges is +18 and our 5-on-5 play is much, much better than last year. Those things are related. I think we have a better chance int he playoffs this season with our 5-on-5 play so much better.
At the beginning of the season, Gorges wasn't our #4. I thought he would be ahead of O'Byrne, but it was obvious they wanted Hamrlik to take O'Byrne under his wings like he had done with Phaneuf and like Markov did with Komi.
That being said, if we had resigned Streit I'm sure he'd been paired with Hamrlik.
Streit was not the reason our 5on5 wasn't that good last season. He wasn't even used on D that much last year, so..I don't know what he has to do with the 5on5 production.
As for his -5, it's not that bad when you look at the horrible team he's on. It's actually pretty decent when you see only 2players are above -1, and both of them don't even combine for as many games played by Streit.
We could have used him around 14-15min at ES and then use him around 5Min on PP, where he's tied 5th in the league for Pts.
Do you realize he has more points than our leading scorer?
