Streit was one guy who seemed to do it well. As I thought did Dandenault. Some guys it works, some it doesn't. I wouldn't automatically say I'm for or against the scheme in general. What boggles my mind is that we never even really tried it with Bergeron last year, and that he played ahead of some other D on our roster at times. If you did have a guy who could do it well, then having the option to swing him back to D if you had injury or ejection to one of your regular D would be a nice option to have.
I definitely don't like the idea in general of doing it to a young, still developing player like Weber, however.
Streit was a much more well rounded player than MAB, much better skater and vision. MAB's only skill that's average or above is his shot. As a puck mover he was below average, Streit is a much better PP QB but with Markov here he was used more as a shooter.
