Isles sign defenseman Strait — three years, $2.3 million


Just two weeks after claiming Brian Strait off waivers, the New York Islanders have locked up the defenseman with a three-year, $2.3 million contract extension.
Strait, 25, was plucked off waivers from Pittsburgh the day prior to New York’s season-opening loss to New Jersey.

He was immediately thrown into the lineup has has been a presence every since, appearing in all six games thus far while averaging over 18 minutes a night.

Prior to joining the Islanders, Strait appeared in 12 games with the Penguins — who took him in the third round of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft — notching one assist and four penalty minutes.

TSN’s Bob McKenzie notes the average annual value of Strait’s deal with the Isles is $775,000, and it’s a one-way deal.


Damn I'm glad they didn't get Street as well, it was hard enough not to think they'd just signed Streit to an extension without having to worry about another similar sounding name.

Mark Streit is the top D-man, still a pending (35+) UFA
Brian Strait is a depth D-man, who was a pending UFA they'd picked up off of waivers and they just re-signed

that contract is better then Edlers. I'm not sure what crack he is smoking, as Streit could have easily gotten a better deal with a different team. Unreal. good job, Garth Snow.

Why do you say that, it's not a bad deal. In fact, Pittsburgh fans are calling this an excellent deal for the Isles after loosing him to waivers. They wish they'd sent down another D so as not to lose him to waivers.

Unless of course you're thinking of Mark Streit, then I could see why you're thinking that. This is for Brian Strait though.

I know who Brian Strait is. :P

I find it odd how he got a multi-year extension after just playing six games. Sure, he's solid in his own end but it's pretty risky to give out a contract after six games (he's not a big name either). I guess that Snow is hoping that he's the next Andrew MacDonald. Hopefully it works out for them.

Agreed, why after 6 games??

He's done pretty much nothing at the pro-level, so why 3 years..?

Well it is only $775K a year, so hardly much risk involved. I can see the argument about why so soon, but the Pens fans were commenting on how it's a good idea to have locked him up now since they think he'll have shown after playing more of the season that he's worth more. They really think he was underused there (only 3 games and 9 games in his two seasons with the Pens).

Here's a couple from the article I linked:

As a Pens fan (and also a Strait fan) I can tell you that I don’t think it’s a bad move. We didn’t play him near enough – and the Isles are doing that – so the more you play him, the more you’ll see him make the plays, and the more his stock will rise. Lock him in at a low rate, what’s it hurting…by year end he may believe he’s worth more.

As long as you’re not expecting offensive contributions, he’s real good.

As a Pens fan losing Strait ticked me off. I felt the Pens should have let Bortuzzo go through waivers. However, due to Bortuzzo being a good hitter Pens decided to keep him instead. Bad move. Isles got a steal here.
