Yep, Stralman is good for 2 years, but I would take 3 or 4 years. Just because he isn't the next Brian Leetch doesn't mean he isn't valuable. He's 25. He is young and fits with our youth movement. He got better and better as the year went on. If Erixon, McIlrath or someone else proves that he is ready and Stralman gets displaced, we have a 25-26 year old puck moving right D-man to trade. That's a pretty good commodity right now. Sign him long and cheap, and the worst that happens is we send him to the minors and someone claims him (if no trade can be worked out).
