Being a top 10 pick does not mean you are a top ten player. What we say are gut feelings, they are not fact.
personally don't think Strome's game will translate to the bigger stage at the level everyone is expecting him too. That is not to say he will not be an NHL player, but more so that he will not reach what many people on HF believe is his potential.
That is why scouts get paid the big bucks for their projections. There is NO WAY anyone can predict how Strome will turn out, but I just think he won't be quite as good as people are making him out to be. Take it however you want, but thats just a gut feeling.
