I absolutely do not think Streit is better defensively. In fact, I think Streit is downright
defensively. Not physical, doesn't challenge well, and just does not have great awareness in his own zone. If you're hemmed in your own zone, and Streit is one of your blueliners on the ice, you're going to have a bad time.
Don't get me wrong, I like Streit. If we can't re-sign Gonch, Streit would be a nice consolation prize... but Gonchar is far and away the better overall player, and IMO his game works to Karlsson's strengths more, especially on the powerplay.
Streit is a bit better offensively at the moment, sure, but there is a chasm between the two defensively.
