That's one of his nicknames, yeah.

He plays like one.

Streit is god-awful. He's terrible defensively, which I always knew, but his offensive instincts arent even there

why did Holmgren sign him for so long?

This certainly wasn't a strong period for Streit.

We should be going into first intermission with a 1-0 lead and hardly any offense from Van but instead we get flukey garbage and end up tied...

I feel like we might be one of the most unlucky teams ever...

I thought he's looked good offensively so far.

EDIT: I mean throughout the season. Not as much this game.

I don't think Streit has been bad at all. I'm not sure where the criticism stems from.

The signs of improvement under Berube are great so far despite the short time period. The penalty problem is still prominent and killing us though.

A lot of people refused to believe he was this bad in the off-season, but the writing was on the wall that he didn't deserve more then a one year contract. We needed offense on the back-end and he was what was available so Homer went all out because he's Homer.

That contract is going to be such a pain in the ass as it progresses. Might actually end up in a buyout as soon as the middle of next season I think.

He's sub-par at ES and he can't play the PK so he really just ends up being a PP specialist more then anything and not even an elite one like Marc-Andre Bergeron or anything like that. He just moves the puck well and is accurate with his shot.

For a guy with a contract like that at his age he should be much, much better.

Made a great Outlet pass at 5:05.

Shame he couldn't get that last shot on net, though.

Haha. In all seriousness he's been ok. Nothing bad or spectacular.

For clarification, I wasn't praising Marc-Andre Bergeron. He was a horrible player, but there weren't many D better then him at the PP. It was literally the only reason he ever stayed in the NHL.

The entire team, barring Mason, has been bad. However, they are all improving.
