I think a 4 year deal gets made here. Three would be very ideal but I believe Streit can still play 4 years, and so does management if the rumors are true.

He wants a raise with his new contract, so let's do the Flyers thing and front load it.

6 million
5 million
4 million
3 million

That's 18 million over 4 years at a 4.5 million per year. Streit only started playing in the NHL at the age of 28 as well. He has more left in the tank than people think I believe. Also I have been saying this was going to happen for a little while now(not the trade, but the Flyers going for him, others as well too), we love our FA in this town. Let's hope he plays well enough to justify the cap hit, also he provides a great quality the back end will lack after next year, leadership. It's not like the Pronger contract going until he is 42, he will be 40 at the end. Prime time for him to retire and return home to the land if the swiss cheese.
