I always liked him not only for his offensive skills but for his defensive awarness, in which I thought he was very underrated. I always cheer for the underdogs, which is why Ribs, Abby, Streit and now Latendresse are my favorite players on the team (+ Koivu of course).

I was pretty impressed by his game last night. He seemed willing to get involved physically, but was nonetheless prone to defensive lapses. I'm glad to see he's finally throwing his body around more, and he was effective on the PP as well.

If he could improve or limit the defensive lapses I think he'd be a good last pairing guy/PP specialist.

He had 3 points and played pretty well in the defensive zone!
I was impressed with his overall play during the game. It would be nice for him to continue to imporve all season and put up some big numbers on the PP!

What do fans think of him? They all think he's worthless until he has a great preseason game.

I'd really like if Carbs would try Streit on offense in the pre-season. He had 2 great shifts (if I recall, he only got 2 shifts that game) as a LW last season towards the end of the year. I think he's got the passing skills, creativity, and shot to make for a good forward. If they aren't going to use him for anything more than a 7th d, they might as well give him a chance to showcase his offensive abilities. We've lost everygame anyway, what would it change

If the habs use him right he can be effective. With all the power play that are awarded in the nhl I would just use him as a power play specialist. dont put him in situations were he can cost us some points. A markov-streit duo could be an interesting one for the power play.

Some fans also think Komisarek is the next Scott Stevens, funny how blind some really are...

I never thought that i would say this but Streit impressed me too last night , especially on the PP/offense side.He still has flaws in his game but he seems to have improved a lot overall since last year.It look like the few pounds he gained this summer are going to help him.

I still have my doubts on him but his progression sure is an encouraging sign (if he keep it up of course).

That's something that I've thought about too.

The only case I can really see against Streit as a forward, is that his Slap and Snap are both low. But then he could always play point on the PP. Imo it's something that should be toyed with while the games don't count.

He's the worst player on the team as far as I'm concerned. His supposed offensive game is non-existent, he's usually the worst player on the PP and he makes bad passes. He's simply not an NHL player.

Well at least someone else here knows hockey. i was at the game yesterday, and sure he had 3 points, and yes he did have some good moments on the PP but defensively...oh my he was simply HORRIBLE. Giveaways left and right just simplyu playing bad. Only worst dman on the ice yesterday was André Benoit.

again im talking about defensive play...not offence

I think Streit has trouble playing Zone coverage rather then man coverage, which is why he perfromed well at the olympics. His first instinct is to follow the player he's covering when he moves, which is why he somtimes gets caught out of position. He also gets physically outmatched alot by some of the bigger guys.

i don't know if he is the worst on the team, but i can't think of anyone he could replace, thus, in many ways i agree. On an unspectacular defense, he is unable to get a regular spot.

He is okay offensively,and has a good shot, that misses the net most of the time. His passing is solid only when not pressured. Any form of pressure and he is a liability. He constantly gives the puck up when faced with being hit

Everyone knew what Streit can do, by man handling team canada at the olympics, he just needed to translate his skills to the NHL. I think hes the next Timmonen.

I really think that he can be a regular NHLer and that he's already one . He's always show big effort , PP specialist , do the job in defencive and he's a leader (Swiss captain) .

I really hope that he will play 40 games this year .

I always had great hope in Mark Streit. He had a hard time adjusting to North America style of play but I think that he will be very solid for us this year. The injury to Bouillon mean he's going to play a lot in the next two month.

By that time, he'll be a lock on the Habs lineup and on the second powerplay unit.

After these few pre season games I know it's just pre season,but looking at the Bruins and Leafs D , and we already know that The Sens and Sabres are better,I think we are in some serious problems.I really don't like our D at all.

I don't share your optimism. He's done well in the offensive end for the most part, but he's a nightmare in his own zone.
