Ding ding ding. Exactly. We gotta remember, Timonen is most likely going to retire after this coming season. Even if its 1-2 years, as long as he stays as a 4 defender him teaching the youngings will be good. By then either the guy we draft in the first (hopefully), maybe even Ghost will be ready to hop in. Not a full time spot but always a chance to grab someone else via free agency again. 3 years for Streit, IMO, wont be a bad deal.
