Streit: "In my heart I wasn't really happy"

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=296204

article on Streit.

Quote:
"Sometimes you have to make a move to get the respect and that's what I did," Streit said Monday as the Islanders prepared to play in Montreal for the second time in five days.
Quote:
"Everyone knows I enjoyed it in Montreal, but I had a different role here and in my heart I was wasn't really happy," the 31-year-old said. "I was a forward, then a defenceman.

Do we really have to have a debate on this? What player of Streit's value likes to go from position to position all the time? Total lack of respect by Carbonneau plain and simple.

One of Gainey's blunders. Ignoring Streit to focus on Sundin (we all know what happened there).

Carbo played a role too, like maxpac says.

Agreed, Streit would still be here if it wasn't for that **** Carbonneau !!

He is clearly a top 30 defencemen in the league right now.

At the time he filled a role but was not willing to be a role player. Kinda ironic considering that had the habs not drafted him and used him in that duel role he'd most likely still be in Switzerland.

Good article, nothing new here though. We all knew what both sides wanted and how it would end.

Streit wanted to be a defenseman, can't blame him. He was a(legitimate - unlike Komisarek) all star in his very first year as a full time D.

Streit was terrible on D that season and lost his place (as #6 Dman) to OByrne and then Gorges, he also was awful in playoffs and a big reason series went 7 games vs Bruins.

I guess he was still adjusting to NHL and has improved defensively since then so good for him. There shouldn't be any what ifs and second guessing cuz at the time he wasn't worth 4.1 million as a Dman to the habs, but since he was a UFA the Islanders and some other teams desperate for vet puck moving D men could attempt to bid on him. 2 Years later the habs D is fine without him also.

I don't think he is as good as you or alot of other posters think he is. He's certainly not worth the $5+ MM he's currently making.

He's paid 4 mil, anf for a D that came off a 62 point season, that's a damn good contract.

I stand corrected. I still don't think hes that great a defenceman or worth the money. I definately don't think he's a top 30 in the NHL by any means though. At the end of the day, he's a PP specialist and that's about it. MAB would have 64 points too if he played top line minutes and he's far from being a top 30 defenceman.

The question is not whether he was happy or not playing forward...Streit made his choice and chose to play the role he wanted, for the money he wanted...on a ****** team. That was more important to him. I am sure there are many days he wishes he was on a better team...even if it meant not always playing defense. There were no other teams willing to give him that role for that price; or I am sure he would have signed with them

I am sure he would have sign a 3M$ contract with the Habs if Gainey starts the negociation earlier in his "breakout season".

The problem wasn't the money, it was the Streit said he would only play defence and Gainey didn't/couldn't guarentee that demand.

Sometimes these things just don't pan out, who cares who's fault it is or what exactly happened. Its like breaking up with a girlfriend, who cares why or who did the breaking up, you're not together anymore, period.

I was not aware that Gainey forced Carbo to use a defenseman as a forward.

And I was not aware that its Gainey's fault that Streit was awful defensively when he was with the Habs.

That ******* Gainey! That *******!

Let just say that if you really would have watched him play defensively last year and even this start of the year, you wouldn't be that decisive.

But CLEARLY Streit has played the worst game defensively this year that I've seen him and for a long time.
