Streit would get paid no matter where he went, probably even more than $5.25mil had a bidding war started. $6mil, easily, and that's scary. I don't approve of the contract at all or the fact that they signed a rather injury prone guy to a 35+ contract for four years while they're still taking the hit on their last 35+ contract as he'll likely never play again. Pronger is the exact reason why you don't do 35+ contracts with that kind of money and term. Thankfully Streit's is up before he's 40...

Regardless of contract, I think Streit will be effective. We'll see how it all develops.
