Strait is a player. Anyone paying any attention the last few years could see that.
It isn't surprising, though. Stuff like that happens when you logjam one position and one position only through the draft and FA. But yes yes... I know -- "BPA!!!"
That sounds like some amazing hindsight. Can I borrow it some time?
Honesty I'm kidding, I still don't know why they let Strait go and not Lovejoy because there was absolutely nothing to lose. Let's not act like we all knew Strait was a top 4 guy though, and he still might not be. I'll wait until he actually has an established NHL career and isn't a minus player.
