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).
I mean, you need those points against division rivals. Why playing it risky with a guy like that?!? Carbo has not impressed me on this one.
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.
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.
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.
