You have to give to get. Streit, first and foremost, would have to sign here. Which is FAR from a guarantee. He is also 35 years old, will be 36 in December. While he is good, he doesn't strike me as the type of player that you should be signing for multiple years at 35 years of age. Streit is not going to fix anything on this defense. He would help next year, for sure. But will he sign here? Will be back after that? If he does come back, does a 37 year old defenseman on what would likely be a pretty hefty contract even make sense? Does a pretty hefty contract for a 36 year old defenseman make sense next year?
