With modern players that we can watch play (and view a multitude of underlying statistics for) we need to dig deeper than a few all-star/norris votes and not pretend that they trump what happened on the ice. Streit is one of the poster children for this type of analysis, and Ehrhoff would be another great example.
Streit's 2010 was clearly underrated by the writers because his team didn't make the playoffs, just like his 2008 was overrated (he actually recovered more votes in 2008).
