I meant if Streit wasn't on NYI and Liles was, do you think he would be able to pull off the same thing Streit has? 'Cause Streit makes them look a lot better than they are.
I think you misunderstood my post.

It doesn't matter whether Streit or Liles would fare better on the Islanders - we aren't talking about the Islanders. We're talking about the Bruins.

Liles is not as much of a goal scorer, so obviously his impact would be diminished with less skilled players, but the Bruins have plenty of offensive weapons, and Chara has a big shot anyway. Liles is a better complement to Chara and the Bruins PP then Streit is.
