I've been intrigued with Strome for the Oilers for a few months as well.
He is a dangerous offensive player with good size, strong skater, good vision, quick release. I've read he's more of a playmaker than goal scorer but from what I've seen he has a nice shot arsenal and can put the puck in the net.
Needs to get stronger as I find him kind of weak on his skates (think of the Oiler young kids at the beginning of the season....falling down, getting knocked off the puck).
Not a lot of info on this guy for some reason. I've only read a few write-ups from the The Scouting Report about Strome. One of the reports was kind of negative about him (
I really like him as a prospect and would be ecstatic if the Oil got him. He's probably 2-3 years away from making an impact in the NHL but he's very intriguing in my opinion.
