Mark Streit appreciation thread

Good show Mark .You have really exceeded all expectations .

To play as well as you have on the 4th line as a foward has really been such a pleasent suprise to many .

21 points so far this season and you scored another nice one today vs the Islanders


keep it up Streit

I hated him on defense mainly cause he didn't have the size to battle down low, however as a bottom lines winger, he is very good.

Streit is awesome. He is one guy I seriously cant remember making a bad play and he is always there to make the big defensive play when someone else makes a mistake. Also he generates scoring chances on the 4th line. Playing with better players his stats would be even better.

People were very harsh on him.... He's much better than Bouillon, Rivet or Niinimaa. Defensively, he's (in my mind) nearly as good as Markov, but he does tend to get outmuscled.... However, if their's a 2 on 1 or 3 on 1 or such an occasion, I would rather have Streit... Imo, he's the most hockey smart player (along with Markov) we have in both zones (albeit his talent might not be top 6 in scoring wingers)...and people are finally seeing that.

I've been a fan of his since he came over, but I must say that I wouldn't have expected him to play as well as he has been playing

If someday both Huet and Aebischer gets injured in one game we know who can strap the pads.

Mark Streit has always been a really good offensive player. Even when on defense before he joined the habs. The only problem he had on defense was that he wasn,t physical enough. Something that he doesn't need as much being a forward. He doesn't have to move players twice his size of the front of the net. Now he can play a more finess type of hockey, something that he is good at. Give him another year and you will see his numbers go up again. But then again, it all depends with who he plays on the 4th line...

I must say, my opinion of Streit has come full circle, when we first brought this guy in, I thought he was useless but he has developed into a solid all around player.

What are the odds of him moving to the 3rd line next year?

Streit - Pleks - Johnson?

It wasn't a lack of physicality...Cuz some of the better defenseman in the game aren't physical (Markov, Redden, Kaberle, Ohlund, Lidstrom, Niedermeyer, etc.)...he was simply getting outmuscled. Defensively though he's as good as anyone on the team.

I think we should put him in the shoot-out again. I love his move. He does it every time. I used to pull the same thing. Get in close, deke one extreme to the other, open the legs of the goalie and slide it in... Hmm, that sounds an aweful lot like my sex move too. He stole my move!

a lot of people say he's 4th line material... but I see him graduating on the third soon enough, or at least next year.

Streit looked better on the 2nd line than Latendresse.

Taking this occasion to make a rare post ever since I met my sweetheart Nancy and returned to school (Not in that order).

I told you guys. The day he was drafted. You guys, you called me crazy. But I was right you guys. But I don't hate you guys, I love you guys.

1 goal, 1 blocked shot, 2 takeaways for tonight's game. He played an awesome game. I've said it before and I'll say it again, he's one of the best bargains in the league!

Not only that, but he's one of the most versatile players in the league all at $.6m. That amount won't usually get you a good 4th liner, much less a good defenceman and PP specialist. Easily one of Bob Gainey's best moves.

Yup, me too. I used to dislike him on defense last season. As a full-time defenceman, he was not very good. But now, as a 4th liner/7th Defenceman, I love him.

I think a big part of the reason why he is playing so well right now is because he feels no pressure. Since the expectations on him aren't as high, he is not afraid of making mistakes anymore, which allows him to do what he does best. On the PP, he improved a lot.

His versality is what serves him and us best, please do not change his role. People tend to underrate the importance of his role right now on our team. He is not your typical 4th line winger. He's also playing PP on the point and is effective killing penalties as a forward. He can also fill the hole of one of our defencemen if someone gets injured or receives a game misconduct (like Souray vs Pittsburgh).. Move him to the 3rd line, and you get a marginal 3rd line player + the voids above to fill.

I absolutely love the work that Streit has done in his new role. I also love the fact that he gives Carbonneau some options, if one of our defensemen go down (as evidenced on Thursday night). His ability to adapt to play wing shows you that he is an absolute team player, who is completely willing to do what is best for the team. That is a tremendous quality, and I'm definitely happy to see it.

He may have even more offensive upside as a forward/point on second power play unit. He has nice soft hands

He's a good defenceman as well. I expect him to replace one of our 3 UFAs next season.
