Injuries are a crutch. When you're last place as a professional sports franchise-there is no excuse. None. Boston, NYRangers, Tampa, Colorado, Montreal, have all played through major injuries thus far this year and are in playoff contention.
Streit is an average #1 defensemen. That's not a knock on him, are we a better team with him? Yes. But adding him, plus a forward who's never netted 20 goals, or 55 points, and was last on the team in +/- last year (yes even worse than Witt), isn't going to improve this team from 5-17 to even 11-11 (which is still what? around 11-12th place end of the year).
This team isn't good-injuries or no injuries. Accept it, and move on.
edit: As for those claiming Streit would make this team totally different. Really? He played all year last year, and the year before that. We finished 26th and 30th respectively. The proof is i the pudding.
