I don't even care that hes 34. Sign him to a 2 year, maybe three year contract and I think he would be awesome here in our system.
I know he has a little problem with injuries, and hes the Islanders captain so he might not leave, but hes a UFA and we have a shot.
This is a contending defense imo:
Methot - Karlsson
Cowen - Streit
Phillips / Gryba - Wiercioch
Phillips / Gryba
Bingo call ups:
You have a solid shut down man on each pairing, and an offensive guy. That's the way I think pairings work best. I know the positions may be wrong, but its semi-changeable. Then you have a back up in bingo to replace either a dfd or ofd.
I think if we come out of free agency with Streit, at least one top 6 winger, and if Alfie came back thats a legitimate contender.
I'm all for it.
