Gainey will re-sign or acquire at least one center. He'll fill out the roster, don't worry.

I'm not sure what you are referring to.

Streit was not the highest-priority free agent at the time. The Habs quite consciously let him go. It may not look like a good idea in hindsight but at the time it was not seen as a high priority and IIRC the Habs did not even make an offer.

There's a difference between "failed to re-sign" and "decided not to re-sign".
