Playoffs: Streit or Bouillon?

If Bouillon is ready for the playoffs, would you choose Bouillon or Streit?

I asked in the GDT, does anyone know if Streit can play wing? He's got great vision, a great shot and some good playmaking abilities.

Over Bouillon? Streit, would've taken him in September, not bandwagoning it, I've always been frustrated with Bouillons limitations.

There is no way we can take Bouillon out of the line up...
Streit is playing tremendous hokcey lately... I would go for 7 D and 11 Forwards...

I think we have enough forward. I wouldn't mind double shifting Kovy and having 7 Dmen tho.

I'd rather play Dandy as a winger instead of Streit... Specially in the playoffs

Hands down Boullion, if healthy, plays before Streit in the playoffs. Don't get me wrong, Streit has play amazing the last few games, so can't take anything away from him, but Boullion is more expreienced and better all around IMO.

Not to me. All around, Streit is better. Bouillon plays with more grit and more heart, but Streit is the most underrated dman we've got. He's amazing on D, and after Markov he seems to be the best at reading plays and knowing when to pinch in. Imo Gainey would go with Bouillon before, but I'd go with Streit.

Same
2nd best puck mover on the team. Alot more creative then Bouillon. And I think...Komo,Rivet,Sourray bring enough toughness.

Exactly and personally I think Streit is better defensively.

Tough question honestly. Their limitations are both similar, they both get outmuscled in the D-zone and can cough it up at bad times. It's really between Streit's vision and smooth passing and Bouillon's intensity(which I think gets overrated on this board, sure he's small and he's not afraid to hit, but his hits don't seem to do much to the opposition). It would also depend on which team we play, but I'd probably pick Streit at this point.

Bouillon, if only because he can stand more punishment (and deliver more, too).

But I'd probably play 7 D's, or play Dandenault on wing.

He should be tried with Ribs and Kovy before...

I'd sit Bouiilon. I have been more than impressed with Streit.
IMHO, he has been our 2nd or 3rd best d-man these past few games... I really hope this guy will stick around.

I'd sit Dandy before Streit.

Agreed. Bouillon might get you a few more cheers, but I think Streit would get you more wins.
Streit is paying well offensively and has seemed to learn how to play well defensively on a smaller ice, despite his smaller stature.

Wow. Just wow.

Okay guys, let's slow the bandwagon down.
Two weeks ago people HATED Streit. Now he's the best thing since Markov.

Streit passing the puck to our goalie who doesn't expect it, the opposing team's player takes it and scores, anyone? I could tell you about many other defensive brain cramps he's had this year in the few games he played. I can't remember Bouillon doing that many huge mistakes and he's played in twice the number of games.

Don't get me wrong I like Streit, and I was one of those defending him against everyone a few weeks ago, but you're all going way overboard here IMO.

To me this is a stupid argument. Look at our number 1 defenseman, Andrei Markov. He might seem like the biggest sissy in the world, but he never makes stupid plays simply cuz he went for a hit, while all of our other D (exept Streit) do. Streit and Markov are very comparable (although not on the same level, we needn't forget that Streit is a rookie after all).

He hasn't had those since the olympic break. Given a good amount of icetime Streit could become one of our best D. Tonight is an example of what he can do with 20+ minutes. He is effective in both zones and the more we see him, the more people will realise this.
