If you answer yes, then you're delusional.

If you answer no, then what the heck is the point of signing Mark Streit? Odds are by the time you're ready to seriously contend for a championship, he'll be nothing but a cap anchor, or at the very least we will be in a situation where we could've better spent that money.

I like playoff hockey as much as the next guy here, but I think it's been proven time and time again now by Holmgren that these expensive short-term band-aids only exacerbate our problems over the long-term. Unless you're a serious contender (ie. you made the playoffs the prior season), you have no business signing Mark Streit to this type of deal.
This isn't the NBA. Just make it to the dance and luck into a hot goalie and anything can happen.
