I have zero faith in a Streit-Mez pairing not becoming a gong show in their own end though.
Yeah, Streit & Mez are kinda the same player, with similar strengths and weaknesses. Having them together doesn't double the good they do, but pretty much does double the havoc they can wreak in their own zone. One key difference between them is that Streit is trying out there, sometimes he's just getting overpowered or making bad decisions, meanwhile Mez just inexplicably stops skating or just stands around in his own end. I think Streit has a role here moving forward and I'd move Mez for pretty much the best draft pick I can get out of him.
