I only see Strome as a wing for this team, but then again I am the only person here apparently who thinks Nielsen is a top-6 center here to stay. Strome has the speed and skill to really get the most out of Tavares' game, and open up a lot of space for JT and Moulson, both of whom are slower players(although JT's skating has impressed me lately).

With Frans locking down the 2nd line spot, and Bailey(who I expect to be trade bait next offseason... I don't see him succeeding at wing on a consistent basis and he just simply is not a bottom-6 center) holding down the 3rd line spot for now with guys like Cizikas, Lee, Nelson and Sundstrom waiting in the wings, IMO all vying for the future of that 3rd line center role, I think the only logical choice is to move Strome to the wing and groom him to play with Tavares.
