I hope Snow passes on Strome.I don't think there's much need to gamble on a hit or miss prospect.

If Snow comes out of the first round with Huberdeau,Hamilton or Couturier at #5, I'll be pretty happy.
By that logic let's trade all of our picks...
The draft is a crapshoot. Petteri Nokelainen (2004, 16th pick) and Kyle Chipchura (2004, 14th pick) were both supposed to be guaranteed NHLers. Where are they now? Nokelainen is in Finland and Chipchura is a healthy scratch/non-factor/13th forward on the Ducks this year.

My problem with Strome is the same as Hamilton: not a big enough reward to justify the risk.
