Well Streit was third in scoring last year on the Habs, behind Plekanec and Kovalev. He also had the same stats as Markov in the playoffs. For all his defensive liabilities in Montreal he turned it around on the Islanders, he was the only Islander with a positive plus minus with a plus 6 (others did not play a full season and Dean McAmmond came in a trade).

Cut it anyway you want Gainey s*** the bed not signing Streit (more so than Ryder), and any fan who says they want dinosaur Schneider over Striet is really drinking the Kool aid. He became a number one D man this year, Markov and Striet could have been as good as Wideman and Chara this year. For those reasons he was your second best player
