People say that but what do you guys make of Streit ?

He came to NA at even older age. And his first season was worse than Emelin's.

People are evaluating Emelin based on him playing his rookie season on his wrong side often with another rookie flanking him and on a bottom feeder team under a coach who did not appreciate what he brought to the table. I think he did amazing under the circumstances.
