What I like about Streit is that he finds a way to contribute. I thinbk he knows there aren't any Norris trophies in his future nor any all star berths, so he holds his ground and finds a way to contribute. When he sees a chance to disrupt when he's on the pk, he takes advantage.

That's what I've noticed with Koivu. He isn't the 22 year old flying thru the neutral zone, but he recognizes when there's an opportunity and jumps on it.
