So, the isles should deal Streit and count on Mayfield in the NCAA, Ness who's underwhemling in the AHL, Matt Donovan in the AHL, or Griffin Reinhart in juniors, to step into the Isles 2013-2014 top 4? Yikes.
I'm pretty sure Matt Donovan 2 years ago could give us what Mark Streit is giving us now. DOnovan is a much better player than he was back then. He's fully developed in the amateur and AHL ranks. For all intents and purposes, he's a graduate student now. I have no worries about him when he gets called up, None.
Streit is okay for a PP specialist and depth defenceman, but far from irreplaceable as he is often portrayed here. I said this before, if he wants and demands three years, he can take a hike. (And if he holds on to those demands, he is going to find himself voting himself off the Island) Snow will do what he needs to do with him.
