Hockey is a game of trust and if you know where Streit or Frans are on the ice it's more efficient than not being sure of where a new person will be.
Listen at the end of the day the guy is a professional athlete. No matter what, everyone has pride. He will play 100% because of this. Lets throw in the fact that he "might" be playing for a contract next year with the Isles or another NHL team. Or even a KHL team. The better he plays the more money he will make. End of story! I think his attitude is poor, but I also think he will help this team starting the second he laces up his skates for the NY Islanders.
