Bolts got a shorthanded 2-on-1 break, Streit also had no stick while playing it... but he played it perfectly and St. Louis' shot got him on the ankle. Nice play.

Can't believe people are actually *****ing about his game last night.

MissCanuck: thanks for the information .. what's youre opinion about streit... i know that he's not the hardest or biggest player in the nhl ... but there are more smaller def. players than him right...

For me he's doing a great job for his first season ..

While people may be eager to blame Streit for poor plays/games, the fact is he is still a weak link. He can't handle solidly built forwards down low. He can be beaten to the outside by speedy forwards, which is precisely what smallish defensemen can't allow. And he's slow when it comes to decision-making with the puck in his own zone.

On the plus side, I do think he's improving, and he's definitely a good skater with some offensive instincts. Given some confidence, he could probably be a solid #6, but he'll always be exploitable down-low...

Komisarek was passing to Streit even when Streit had very little to no time to make a pass .I think Streit played well considering he played with Komisarek who had a not so good game .

I agree completely. I think he'll be better with time but my patience for him isn't there because of his unwillingness (is that even a word??) to play in Hamilton to get much needed ice-time in a smaller rink.

Streit....

I think he had a rough first period. Lots of nervous play and tentative passes that were off the mark. He picked it up as the game went on.

I do not agree that it was his best game as a Hab, the first period was painful. He has had games were he was invisible. In those games, he did not stand out as a bad player. That means, in my eyes, as a 6th D, those games were better then the last one.

He is just too easy a target.

Let's put this game into perspective. At the beginning of the year, I believe the concensus was.... get some young guys into the line up and play them regularly, and make the playoffs.

The Habs have more rookies in the line up then they have had since I can remember. And they are developping pretty well. Now, let's just make the playoffs.

We cannot look at every game, and every shift as a crisis. Keep your eye on the goal. That is how you measure success.

Not me...when the Habs lose, players who barely play always get singled out for being horrible, it's nothing new.

When the Habs lose, someone always has to be singled out, it's never just chalked up to the other team deserving the win or that we simply didn't play well as a team.

I thought he was ok. He did have some shots get blocked but I loved the pinch he made on the PP down low. That call on him made me laugh. Got to love how one of the weakest players on the team can knock down one of the bigger players in the league with one hand!

I personally think some go too far with Streit but either way I don't expect him to play too much again and would be surprised to see him back next year. He was great in international games though. I hated the pick at first but after watching him play for the Swiss, I thought it was a smart gamble.

Streit was fine, I'd put him in again if Markov wasn't playing for sure.

EDIT: There you go. Markov not playing, I'd go with Streit again.

Dont forget on the power play...when his stick broke on a shot. He defended a 2 on 1 with no stick and blocked the pass. That was a really good play.

the title of this thread is a real thigh slapper. Wow, what creatitivity. Using the name of a brand of hot chocolate to take a baseless dig at one of the Habs. I can't wait for the next Pulitzer worthy contribution.

[ 2 minute penalty for attempt to demean.]

Would Cote be a better use of our sixth D-man when we're missing one of the regulars?
He also makes some terrific passes

I see him as developing and as exhibiting flashes. next year he could easily be the 7th Dman
