if they want to fill their roster with players who were going to play in the AHL anyway, let them. no skin off the Pens' backs. they were probably going to let go of Lovejoy or Strait anyway (one would be going when Morrow is ready). Strait just drew the short end of the stick.

Strait is a solid prospect, but i don't expect him to do anything more than become a bottom-pair defenseman, a #6 at best, and that's if he works on his kinks and doesn't have any setbacks.

the plus for the Islanders is that he's still very young, and if he doesn't do what they need him to do, he's gone at the end of the year.
