I'd say yes and no. Yes as we have nobody else in the system that compares to Streit and brings the same qualities he does, and no because I think Coté has shown enough to at least assume he's legitimate competition for the 7th Dman spot.

I'm a big Coté fan. I like him just as I liked Beauchemin way back when, for a similar reason, which is attitude. Dedication, character, will to learn and work ethic are all attributes that seem top notch in both players.

I wonder if they'd keep both Streit and Coté in the lineup though. After this year I believe we can no longer send Coté to the minors without putting him on waivers first and Streit would likely just go back to Switzerland if he was demoted to the AHL.
