From Mike Boone at Habs Inside/Out,
Streit’s 34 points on the power play tied Streit with Nicklas Lidstrom for second among NHL defenceman, behind Sergei Gonchar’s 46. Streit’s salary was $600,000. Lidstrom’s was $7.6 million. Gonchar made $5.5 million.
Citing the $1.875 million Francis Bouillon will make this season and $1.75 for Mathieu Dandenault, [Journal du Montréal beat man Marc de Foy] says $2.5 million would not be unreasonable for Mark Streit.
Streit’s agent, Pat Brisson, says there are no negotiations underway with the Canadiens.
Another factor: Streit prefers playing defence. There are rumours in New York that the Rangers will pursue Streit and promise him a spot on D.
