If Snow could pull off something like that, I'd hope he'd consider it. In the end though, it's all about how important is it for this team to make the playoffs. The organization has said that they felt this team could make the playoffs (the company line) this year and it's April and they're still in it...

Streit is still the captain and has a strong presence in the lockerroom. The team is still young and their psyche is still very fragile. Experiencing a legitimate playoff race and possibly making it could do absolute wonders for this team, you can't put a price on something like that. Keeping Streit for that gives us the best chance to accomplish that, so I keep him and possibly add a vet who could help us.
