He's probably a better forward than either Downey or Murray.

Streit is third in scoring for D, that's what was expected of him. He deserves to play and none of the Top 6 deserve to sit.
I think you're right. I'm not sure how things'll shake out with Kovalev and Samsonov,but I don't see Streit sitting right now. When you think about it, is his pp time more valuable than someone's 4th line minutes ?

I was all set to shake my head at putting Kovalev with Koivu, but maybe, it's worth a try. Maybe Ryder/Samsonv/Plekanec makes sense. I'm not sure truthfully, Kovalev has had some brutal shifts. He seems so stationary in his own zone, I wonder how bad he's hurt. You hate to over react when th eteam's winning, but they'll need more 5 on 5 eventually. With Higgins out, it's the time to juggle I guess.
