It's a Gonchar-like risk. Gonchar was horrible in his first year with Ottawa, but has had two decent years since. That's what I see with Streit. You sign him for 3-4 years and you'll get two good ones.

Not my first choice when you could get a guy like Liles for a song. I'd like to see the Oilers bring in something like Liles and Alzner/Coburn/Gudbranson...tough to get those guys though.

Mayers would be a great addition...but he made 12M last season - so the Sabres have already made a huge investment in him, so I doubt he'll be moved. I'd take Ville Leino as a 2nd line LW though. I also like Luke Adam - who is like the Sabres' Paajarvi.

The Islanders will not be offering Streit a contract anywhere near that, if one at all.

So you want a new Shawn Horcoff contract in Ville Leino?

Egads people.
