Now lets be honest. Islander fans are saying Pitt forwards were beating them to the outside? Pitt forwards do this to every team and defense in the league. Stretch passes and speed is what that team is all about. Boston shut them down with a amazing neutral zone defense. Limited their fast break opportunities and made them play a slower game. So can we stop saying Crosby, Malkin, dupuis, and others were Beating him, because they do it to everyone.

Now I will not criticize the contract until he plays. Every player has their downsides and every player has their positives. It's the coaches job to play him in those spots. Streit will also provide leadership for the young defenders and forwards. Something you can't calculate in dollars signs. One major plus is he only played over in the NHL for 8 years, so his body isn't all that bad.

Lets see how he performs before we go apepoop or start drinking drano(looking at you beef). If he sucks then we can all proceed to rip homer and him a new one
