I can imagine that Streits demands went up when he saw what Visnovsky got. And I can understand if he thinks that he shouldn't get less than Visnovsky, they have a very similar skillset IMO.
It's really hard to tell if that's true right now, because we don't know how hurt Streit is. But if we go by how they're playing now, it's not at all true. They're close offensively, but Visnovsky is much better both defensively and moving the puck in his own end. He's also been far more decisive than Streit.
