I've liked Strait since his days at BU, and was looking forward to him filling the hole left by Scuderi on the Pens blue-line. Unfortunately, Shero didn't see as much value in him and gave him away to a division rival. I think it was a mistake (time will tell how big or small of a mistake it was) but either way, congrats to Brian and the Isles. This move might not get a lot of fanfare but I think the Isles D just got a little tougher to play against over the next 3 years. Even if he only amounts to a 6th defenseman, I think he's going to be a good one.
