I'm not mad we traded him and I would not be mad if they kept him. Truth is.. he was never going to start on a regular basis with all of our depth. Shero ended up getting the 5th rounder we all crave anyway.

It's just a weird situation to still be pissed at. Lovejoy got us our 5th. I'm actually very happy Strait is getting ice time w/ NY. He's averaging 18+ minutes a game, is a -2, and has 1 assist on the season. I always thought he was an all-around player, but nothing special.

After seeing Bort play, I think Bort is better than Strait. And I'm not trying to make Strait sound bad. He's a solid defender... but people need to realize we were just too stacked at that position. Holding on to him would make what sense? We have 7 defense that are all better and guys like Morrow in the AHL.

edit: And I wouldn't be surprised if Strait doesn't make it to another contract. He's not doing that amazing.
