Adjusted plus minus was in a few drafts ago but I guess it's out of style now

I have a very easy time thinking Streit would be a #1 on a good team in 2009 and 2010, considering he was at least as good and probably better than any defenseman on a NJ Devils team or a NY Rangers team that made the playoffs both seasons.

I think the difference is that as a Canadian, you think mostly of Streit's time in Montreal. I think mostly of his time on the Islanders with some vivid memories of the 2010 Olympics mixed in (I had no idea who he was in 2006, but he was reportedly very good then).

Seabrook actually did receive more All Star votes than just about any other contenporary defenseman of the era with his relatively unimpressive stats, but yes, the voting record only tells some of the story with him
