The worst is, Mark Streit has been the most stable guy on this squat so far in defense...

Why does it have to be a bad thing if the guy is playing great?

It was a quote.... The poster said he was scared when he saw Streit and Niniimaa against Sundin line. If he was scared with Streit pairing Niniimaa, he SHOULD have been much more scared if it was anyone BUT Streit with Niniimaa.

Bottom line : If I'm GM of a teams that dresses AT LEAST 1 non-NHL caliber D-Men (about 50% of the teams, actually, including the Habs as Niniimaa do not play AT ALL like an NHL D-Men so far), I make a "subtle offer" for Streit right away. (starts asking for Souray, then Rivet, then Streit...). That's what I'm afraid will happen when he goes down the depth chart as Dandy and Cube come back (...while Rivet and Niniimaa will probably still be playing).

Why would you call it risky? What do you mean when you say a guy like that? According to the commentary, Streit has been one of best at shootouts in practice... so he earned the opportunity. And he came closer than almost anyone?

It was a good move and doesn't warrant on off-hand comment that has no basis.

Are you saying Rivet should stay at home until he picks his game up

Just kidding actually... it is a long season and he should get it together soon.

Depends on when Dandy returns and how well Streit is doing, but I get the feeling that the veterans are going to get a free ride. However, I could also see one of them being traded, as they are UFAs at the season end.

It's only the Swiss league. Simply compare Swiss league stats to his NHL stats:
In Elite Leagues(Not including Playoffs):
GM G A P
364 57 139 196

In NHL(Not including Playoffs):
GM G A P
53 2 10 12

Production isn't even close, therefore, swiss league play does not translate to NHL performance.

You're right, it doesn't. But it doesn't mean it ain't there either. I think he'll produce a fair bit more this year than last. Then again, I've been a fan of his since we drafted him.

Streit is too much bashed on 110% to be a bad player.

Give him a chance, it is his second season. IMO, he's farrrrr better than Mr. Prediction Ninimaa, and he still hasn't showed all his talent. Give the guy some credit. When dandy comes back, I hope that he will take Ninimaa's place.

I was at the game and eventhough I was a little surprised to see Streit out there, I thought this was justified. He had a solid game, even in the D zone and Koivu, Higgins had a pretty bad night.

Nope you are allowed to, but I can only remember one player taking one not in a shootout but rather a penalty shot the guy was on the Leafs Reichal????


Striet's move was fantastic, I would not be suprised to see him shoot in the top 5 in the Canadiens next shootout.
