Streit?

I was wondering how long/often Streit has been playing on the wing as opposed to on D... how's he doing on the wing?

And what prompted this move?

he dominates pretty much any position you put him on, PPG Pace on the top lines, shuts down star players and has '' HANDS ''

IMO he's a better winger than defenseman. Playing real well as of late with a hot hand. He was put on the wing a few games back in November, and then pretty much permanently come the beginning of December.

Streit has been on fire lately. For his position(4th line) anyway. 7 points in last ten games and three goals in the last four. He's been our best player along with Plekanec, no doubt.

Streit has been playing on the wing for about a month and a half now. He has been playing tremendously well and is being used in all situations. He is able to play the point on the PP, play as a forward in the penalty kill on top of seeing a regular shift. As far as I remember he was our second leading scorer behind Plekanec for the month of January.

Playing him on the wing allows Carbonneau a lot of flexibility, for example when Souray was thrown out of the game last week vs the Penguins Streit was shifting from LW to D, sometimes even on the same shift!!

Right now I can honestly tell you that since he was moved to LW he has been one of our top 2-3 players. He is strong on the boards, strong defensively, doesn't make mistakes or give up the puck, keeps it simple and battles hard every shift.

We had 8 defencemen, 6 + Streit and Niinimaa. Carbo wanted to use those 6 but thought Streit deserved to play as well.

Dominates is a pretty strong word. I think that defensivly we was OK but as a winger, he'd be a good 4th line/3rd line player. He's a smart player, has a good hockey sense and has decent hands, but lacks size to be a great defensman. He's kind of like a smoother Dandenault with a better vision of the ice.

Streit gets my vote for best surprise player of the season. He went from bubble Dman to most versatile player on the team. He looks great in a defensive role on the 3rd or 4th lines, can fill in for a few games on the top-2 lines when need be as a complimentary player and can manage the point on the PP quite well. Plus he can still be put back at the blueline when too many injuries occur. He is what I would call the perfect extra player, even though he's playing regularly now, because he can fill any role he's given. I wouldn't be surprise to see him between the pipes down the road.

Thanks a lot.... good to see the swiss guy doing well.

I will now go back to the Bruins board and ponder the crap that our team is right now.

He also has double the points from last year with 22 after 48 games vs 11 after 48 games last year. His +/- is also at +1(thats exceptional on our team). Streit is cheap, he has heart, he speaks french, hes not a whiner, he doesnt get bad penalties called on him, he is smart with the puck, he is smart without the puck and he makes plays happen.What more could one want? If we could clone him we would.

He's also surprisingly not soft. He never takes short-cuts. His puck-pursuit abilities are really very good, and he'll surprise the opposition by laying the body, even while killing a penalty.

So far so good with Streit.

Does he have the chance to stay on the first line, or even do you think for the rest of the year you expect him to score maybe a goal a week which is good enough for me. Since he would be a steal in my fantasy league. On a side not why did you guys waive samsonov, that means my flyers will do the stupid move and pick him up

1st, Streit won't stay on the 1st line for long. I Expect him to go back to the fourth soon. Go pick up Ryan Clowe instead.

2nd, Please pick him up, he's great at going fast in circles and shooting the puck on opposing players ankles.

Streit's best attribute is perhaps the way he says mieux-mieux. That's just great.

And Yvon and Pierre explained it well; he's going to the net, and is getting rewarded.

Seriously, Streit is so much better on offense than on defense, though he's improved on defense from last year as well. Most improved player on the habs this year.

Why is Streits playing time going down? (13 min last game)

Had no chance to see a Montreal game lately - but i thought he was one of the better players?

He was played back on defense due to injuries and thus 3rd pairing defenseman ice time.
