That is how Streit broke out and became the dominant point D that he is today.....As for running your mouth in front of the camera....that's a whole other story ..........if he actually would have been right about " having a better shot than other guys on the power play "..........
Anyways, like I said before, I won't try to hide it, I realy dislike the guy, so my judgment might be blurred....
Not a team player, best example of that is when there's a whistle in our own end, ever noticed how often he's the first to give a shove....a the first to run away, so his teamates have to cover his arse....happens all the time......i'm sure they realy like having to protect his precious butt...........ok, I better stop it now, you get the picture
well, an opportunty for what ??????

I'll help you out on the better "shot than", only 3 of our D got PP goals last season
1. Subban got 5 in 81 games (1st PP wave)
2. Weber got 4 in 60 games (2nd PP wave)
3. Kaberle with 1...

oh! yeah! kid also got 3G in the 6 PO games he played with the Habs...

like it or not, the shot we were missing all season last year on the PP : it's him.
