STREIT!!!

Has he played once since the olympics??? He had his confidence back and we destroyed it again by not playing him. It sucks..

It has to be Streit, at least he has some hockey skills

I'm not even sure that Simpson would be an upgrade over Dandenault ... He seems exactly like the type of dman that is useless with the new NHL 'cause of a serious lack of hockey sense and speed !

Agreed.

Not many tougher teams left anymore, though. So that mostly means Streit. But it would be good to get Simpson in some time just to get his feet wet.

So any official word on Markov? I don't think we can afford to lose him.

Todd Simpson. Let him rough things up and keep Rivet and Souray on the ice. Streit couldn't rough up a cardboard box.

You can go 2 ways. Give Streit heavy pp minutes, and a few token shifts. That could add up to 1012 minutes. The other 5 can cover the rest. Dress Simpson, Kovy sees point duty and you don't have to worry as much about Souray's temper.

We could dress Simpson and Streit, and bench Sundstrom.

Then depending on how Simpson or Streit plays, decide which one fits better.

I'd try Simpson... Because he's just arrived in Montreal, I'd just like to see him play, to see how he can help us. I think he could do something good in Montreal, he's big and we need this kind of player.

Sure, I'd like Streit because of the PP, but Souray can easily do it, like many people said, with the way he's playing lately.

I think it depends what type of player they want to insert into the lineup.... Offensive then Streit.... defensive tough then Simpson for sure

I hope you're not compairing Markov and Streit... anyway, you and I seem to hardly ever agree when it comes to the gritty side of the game. Just differant fans of differant styles I suppose.

Why not bench Sundstrom and dress Simpson and either Murray or Downey?

Personally i prefer Simpson to dress over Streit not because he is any better but to let him get his 1st game with us under his belt.

All I'm saying is...you should replace a finesse player with a finesse player.

Next game is Tampa...not really a game that warrents a slow goon* type player on D. Besides...we do have alot of toughness guys that can take care of them selfs. Komi, Rivet, Sourray, Bouillon can all be really physical. And if you fear fights you can sit Sundstrom. And dress either Downey or Simpson. There is a reason why Simpson was benched on a regular basis in Chicago.

He is also getting a lil better at tying up the man.

I like how Downy is always moving. Has anyone else noticed that?
