Strait, in every way (including asset management), would have made more sense. But I guess done is done. So whatever. It still doesn't make watching him put a world class player like Malkin on his wallet, calmly collect the puck and move it to his partner (on the top pairing) any easier, though.

As for Bort... yeah... I am both looking forward to and dreading watching him try to make his way. It could be ugly, on this team but I'm a big believer in his ability.
I have this weird combination of annoyance and vindication when it comes to Strait.

"See, I told you he was ready, look at him stand up on Mal...damnit"

The fact that the treatment of young players is exactly the same in WB/S really concerns me.
