For me, it's kind of the idea that it was a wasted pick, then. Strait basically became the type of defenseman he was drafted to become. So if that "type" has no place on this roster, why draft a guy like him in the first place? It's not like the Pens envisioned him to be a two-way stud who could produce 30 points a year to go along with his defensive game, but instead his offensive game never materialized the way they hoped. Strait basically became what he was drafted to become.

For me, there's just a disconnect there.

edit: And I wouldn't be surprised if Strait doesn't make it to another contract. He's not doing that amazing.
Do you mean his next contract? Because he signed a 3-year extension with the Isles.
